The smooth, slightly rounded surface of these cat's eye lentil beads gives them ample opportunity to display their beauty. Since these beads are fashioned from fiber-optic glass, they capture and reflect light in a shimmering band at their centers that gleams like a cat's eye. Mix these beads into your creations for a fun display! All of our cat's eye beads are exquisite and A-grade. These beads are sold by the 16-inch strand (there are approximately 35 beads per strand).
