Shop Cornelian Star beads, one of the brightest variations of rocaille Czech glass beads.
Similar in shape to a seed bead -- but much larger -- these brilliant beads feature a white star in the center, created by a layer of chalk white glass at the heart, surrounded by a contrasting color of glass on the surface. The effect is neither a traditional seed bead, nor a classic Chevron bead or even a whiteheart, yet combines elements of all 3.
The size 32/0 beads (about 7.5mm, also known as a Crow Bead) are great for macramé -- their 2.5mm hole fits nicely on 2 strands of 1mm hemp cord, Brazilian waxed polyester cord, and other popular 1mm knotting cords.
The size 6/0 beads (about 4mm) have a 1.5mm hole which fits most stringing materials.
This versatile bead is available in jet black, plus a full ROYGBIV rainbow of colors!
