Snowflake Obsidian beads on a temporary string. These volcanic glass beads are perfect for jewellers and beaders!


Snowflake Obsidian beads

Nice grey and black Snowflake Obsidian beads, delivered to you on a temporary string. You just need to cut a single knot – they are on a strand for postage and storage so we don’t have to count out hundreds of beads!

These strings are absolutely perfect for jewellers and beaders; this grey spotted Obsidian glass is generally used for costume jewellery and beading.

These beads contrast with almost anything – pair them with paler beads for a stand out look but they also contrast really well with silver or gold.

Currently, we sell two shapes; round beads on 40CM strands, and randomly sized ‘chips’ on 90CM strands.
