Lapis Rice Beads are reconstructed man-made beads with an opaque deep blue tone. These beads are 16mm long and 6mm diameter and are thickest at the center tapering gently to the ends. Beads are drilled through the center along the long axis of the bead. The deep opaque blue tone of these beads would add a fantastic touch to any jewelry or craft project.
Rice Beads have a hole size that is approx 1.0mm - big enough for a 20 AWG wire but may be too small for an 18 AWG wire.
These beads are man-made and as such are smooth and uniform in color.
Strands are sold as temporarily strung. Strands are approximately 16" and can vary +/- 0.5".
