True Cut Seed Beads, Purple Iris Charlottes, Metallic, Size 13, Full Hank, 12 Strands, Vintage
If you do not know what "True Cut" or "Size 13" or "Charlottes" are then this item is not for you. Please do not buy it unless you understand what you are buying.
These are vintage True Cut seed beads. These beads are also known as Charlottes or Charlotte Cuts. They are Czech glass size 13 seed beads in METALLIC PURPLE IRIS.
Czech Charlotte cut seed beads are very popular for detailed embroidery and Native American beading. They are donut shaped seed beads with a single facet or flat side. This single facet results in irregular shimmers and sparkles, adding interest and depth to your designs.
Charlotte 13/0 Seed Beads come in smaller hanks than other seed beads. Each strand is 12 inches long and there are 12 strands per hank. Each hank has about 3000 Charlotte Cut 13/0 seed beads.
Note: 13/0 is usually pronounced "13 ott" and written using a degree symbol.
Many of the colors I have are available today. However these are from a collection I started over 20 years ago; they may or may not still be available elsewhere.
I tried to closely match the color in the photo to the color of the beads in real life. Colors may vary depending on your screen. Remember if you don't like it you can return it.
Size 13 Charlottes are less than 1mm in height (hole to hole) by a little over 1mm in width.
The last photo is an excerpt from A Beadworker's Toolbook with a section of a loom woven hat band, done in Charlottes. Please notice the size of the beads before you order. These are small beads!
The holes in these beads are smaller than common size 11 seed beads. While they can fit a size 12 needle through them you will need a finer beading needle for many stitches.

Shipping from United States
STANDARD SHIPPING is with USPS first class mail or Parcel Select with delivery confirmation. Packages go out the next business day or sooner.
I can never guarantee arrival dates. If you need your package by a certain deadline I STRONGLY recommend you use the Priority Mail upgrade. Select that option in your cart before checkout. I find these travel the quickest and are more certain to arrive within the USPS expected dates. These are also not guaranteed however.
Please ensure your address is correct. I do not refund shipping on orders returned to me by the carrier due to an erroneous address entered on your order. This often happens when someone moves or when they enter an incorrect or incomplete address. I have paid to ship the order to the address you asked and I cannot receive a refund on that.
If you are worried about delays in transit contact me to help you with tracking it.
Shipments showing delivered by USPS are considered to be delivered to you. Contact your mail carrier right away if you don't find the package. Otherwise missing packages require filing of a mail theft report. Track your incoming packages so you know when they are as scanned arrived. This limits theft or misplacement of your orders.
I insure all orders. By purchasing you agree to comply with my requirements of claims for loss or damage. Orders shipped via Priority Mail are insured by USPS with their insurance claims policies. Otherwise, I follow Etsy shipping insurance guidelines. These are found at http://www.shipsurance.com/etsy/terms. Basically, claims for lost packages require 20 days for domestic shipments and 60 days for international shipments. Claims must be filed within 120 days from the date of shipment.
In the case of a domestic package showing as delivered but you do not have it then please provide the claim number of your Theft of Mail report.
See above paragraph for iinsurance on shipments outside of the US.
Shipping outside the USA is by First Class International. Tracking is not available for all international packages from the USA and shipping can take weeks. I may refuse shipping to any countries for which insurance is unavailable to me.
The buyer is responsible for import fees such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. I will only partially refund the If the order is returned due to the non-payment of these fees. I will deduct shipping and a restocking fee of 20%.

Lead Free & Cadmium Free Pewter
Many of the pewter items in my shop are labeled in this way in the listings. It means there is less than 100 parts per million of lead and less than 75 parts per million of cadmium according to the data I am given by my supplier.
I do not provide any certifications that I receive from my suppliers. If you need those certification you will need to buy from the manufacturer directly or get your own testing done. There are reliable testing kits that are relatively inexpensive.
