Loose beads sold by the 1/4 kilo on

Loose beads -- the latest addition to our ever-growing catalog! For years we have been proud to offer our entire selection of Czech pressed glass and fire polished beads strung in easy to work with hanks. The beads usually come strung in hanks of 300, 600, or 1,200 beads, depending on the size of the bead. Having the beads strung at the factory in Czech Republic saves valuable time for local bead stores because the merchandise is easily prepared for sale.

Hanks are a great packaging format for most beads, especially the really small ones that are difficult to count. But what about those tricky big beads? Some beads are so wide that their hanks end up being 2 feet long! Each bead store handles them in their own way; selling partial strands, loose in a dish, etc. Buying loose beads by the kilo is an easy way to add variety at a low cost. String them yourself, or sell them loose... either way they're a great deal!

We also carry a wide variety of HurriCane glass loose by the 1/4 kilo:
