Size 6/0 Czech glass E beads in opaque and translucent colors from Rings & Things. Special finishes available include ghost, luster, and silver lined.
The letter "E" refers to the beads' shape. Their form resembles the flattened sides on a slice of bread; just as bread is cut from a loaf, "E" beads are cut from an elongated tube of glass. The slicer used in this process is shaped much like the letter "E," therefore creating slightly squared-off beads as it presses down on the tube.
