Glass Crow beads, and similar Glass Roller Beads and Metalized Plastic Crow Beads, are either 9mm (with a "3.1mm" hole) or 6mm (with 2.1mm hole) beads with large holes that will easily slip 2mm leather.  These are widely used in Native American jewelry, as well as hair-wrapping, and to make fun projects like Beadie Babies.  

Crow beads are being phased out of production in the Czech Republic.  As long as we can find distributors with crow beads in their inventory, we will continue to provide them to our customers.

Roller beads are taking the place of crow beads.  They are about twice the cost, but still an inexpensive bead.   They come in transparent, lined, effects, opaque, metalized and more styles and finishes either in the lining of the bead, or applied to the outside of the bead.  

Metalized plastic crow beads are opaque with metal finishes.

Plastic beads of similar shape, size (9mm) and hole size are called pony beads.  Glass "pony beads", however, are something completely different -- smaller in size and hole and with a very different "feel" about them.
