Crow beads are also known as pony beads. Widely used for traditional and contemporary bead projects. Our high quality Czech glass crow beads are available in a variety of colors and finishes. Beads measure 6x9mm with a 3mm hole to accommodate large cords such as leather thong or wax cotton. Traditionally used for native crafts, chokers, threading onto fringe and adorning dream catchers, the addition of vivid colors and finishes to the range makes them an ideal bead for contemporary projects. Authentic glass crow beads from the Czech Republic are in short supply and becoming more and more difficult to source. Many of these colors will be discontinued when they are sold out. Finishes: The rich, opaque colors are solid all the way through. The transparent colors are see-thru, giving a jewel-like appearance to the beads. The luster colors have a shiny, pearlescent finish.The opal colors are semi-translucent with a soft, cloudy look. The lined beads have a clear glass exterior, with a solid colored, or foiled color center known as silver lined. Silver lined beads have an exotic dimension to their appearance and are a premium glass bead.
