Glass beads have been made for about 9,000 years. They come in all shapes, colors, finishes, appearances. For most of their history, glass beads were more than a craft, more than an art. They were equivalent to money, and were traded.
Most fancy glass beads and drops in these displays are from the Czech Republic. Most often, these are pressed glass beads in many shapes, sizes and colors. We've tried to include a wide variety of beads here, including many wonderful 4-6mm rounds, ovals, faceted ovals and the like which can be used in many of your creative beading projects.
Land of Odds Bead Shop offers a wide selection of glass beads, from Austrian crystal to tile to cloisonne to Czech and East Indian. Our newsletter, The ODDSIAN, offers charts about the number of beads by size of bead to the inch, as well as standard bracelet, anklet, choker, and necklace lengths for males and females.

we do not have a Printed Catalog.
Also, don't assume that the same color will still be available when you order next -- even with a basic color like 'black'.
Also in your planning, assume that the variability of size/color/shape in any lot of hand-crafted beads will also have considerable variability.
Don't hesitate, when planning a project, or ordering from us, to ask us questions about supply and availability of beads. We'll do our best to find answers and options for you. This may mean having to modify your design plans somewhat, or for us to find an alternative, though sometimes higher cost, supplier. It may also mean buying your key beads or other parts and findings in larger quantities. At Land of Odds, we are all too familiar with the trials, tribulations and joys of jewelry design. We'll work closely with you.
If you are ordering SEVERAL ITEMS WHICH YOU MUST HAVE "ALL OR NONE", then please email or notify us of this fact when you place your order. Normally, we ship what is available, and out-of-stock the rest. We do not typically call or email about what is unavailable, unless specifically requested to do so.
We cannot be responsible for the color of dyed stones.
Listed weights and sizes for cast jewelry and beads pieces are approximate.
Please be aware that the colors of images you see on your screen may differ from the true colors of any item offered for sale. We do our best to see that there is as little distortion from the true colors as possible, but different browsers and different computer graphics hard- and soft-ware do many different things with colors. Even when switching between Netscape, Internet Explorer and AOL, some colors will vary considerably, some will vary a little, and others won't vary at all.
