8/0 Blue Turquoise Opaque Seed Bead
These Czech glass 8/0 opaque turquoise seed beads are made by the established glass company Preciosa (prior to that Ornela a state run factory by Jablonex) in the mountains north of Prague.
Czech seed beads are easily recognisable by their round doughnut shape. The symmetrical shape of the beads can be appreciated even more when beads are strung. Regularity and consistency of the shape set Czech seed beads apart not only from Chinese but also, contrary to popular belief, from Japanese seed beads.Whether you are a design student, DIY crafter, or jewellery designer you will discover just how versatile these beads are.
Size 8/0 are an ideal size to team with bugle beads if you want to use a similar width bead or to apply sequins. They also work especially well in between beads which gives a necklace a fantastic drape when strung on flex wire and also great for loom work.
