These tiny seed beads are temporarily strung on fine white thread, but you can use them in artwork as is as long as they don't get much wear and tear. For permanent use as jewelry or as a movable or touchable part of your artwork, you may want to consider restringing them in a more sturdy manner. They'll look patriotic for USA holidays (and all countries with blue, white and red coloring) just sitting in a pin dish as well!
Each strand is about 60 inches long. The patterns and the beads differ slightly.
