Glass India Tile Beads
Compared to Czech Tile Beads, some India Tile Beads are less uniform in shape and color. They tend to have thicker sides and narrower holes. Imitation Sinew will easily go through the holes. They make nice additions to Bone Hairpipe Chokers and Necklaces. You will find them a perfect economical Glass Bead for your projects.
Standard Beads measure approximately 6 mm long x 5mm wide with a 2mm hole.
We now offer 10 colors of Larger Tile Beads that measure between 8mm – 9mm long. Their width is 6mm – 7mm. Hole diameters vary between 2mm – 3mm.
We offer these beads in 1 ounce bags with approx. 75-80 beads. You can also buy them in 1/2 kilo packages with over 1000 beads.
Pink & Light Purple are smaller India Tile Beads. They are just a smidgen shorter in length and width (5 mm rather than 6 mm) but the hole is much smaller. You will only get Thread or a single ply Imitation Sinew through it.
