Marea is the Spanish word for tide, and the marea finish on these beads gives them an opaque sheen that adds a variety of colors you would see on the ocean at high tide, including orange, greens and blues. Each semi-transparent bead glimmers in the light thanks to this fun coating. You'll love the array of colors that appear in these stunning glass beads. These beads are made in small quantities by hand. We work with the finest vendors and have the most consistent, beautiful glass available. Due to the way the glass is made, there may be slight color variation from one batch to the next.
