These 5mm flower Forget-Me-Not beads are available in packs of 50 beads. Please choose your colours from the drop-down menu. I have labelled the gallery photos with their colour names, so you can find what you need.
About the 5mm Flower Forget-Me-Not Beads
These are pressed glass beads made in the Czech Republic. As you may have guessed from the description, they measure about 5mm across.
They are about 2-3mm deep and have a hole, vertically through the centre. So, this dictates the way in which you can use these beads.
I have done my best to photograph the beads so that their colours are rendered accurately. But as with all beads online, you may expect some variation. Different computer screens render the colours differently. So, this makes it very hard to convey with 100% accuracy. But hopefully you won’t be disappointed with your choices.
A note on the name. You may see these beads sold as 5mm pressed glass flowers. However, their proper trade name is ‘Forget-Me-Nots’. So, you may also see them sold under that trade name. They are the same thing!
So, what can you do with these 5mm flower Forget-Me-Not beads?
The placement of their hole means that they are ideal when stitched flat to a piece of beadwork. So, you would need to anchor them by using a small seed bead to sit across the hole.
As you can imagine, they work really well for bead embroidery projects.
I have used them in this flower basket beaded box. Keep a look out for some more projects – I have some secrets in the pipeline, which I will add on here as soon as I am able!
If you’re not worried about seeing the flower shape, then you can also string these beads. That gives a really interesting texture.
So, hopefully that gives you a couple of ideas to start with. Let me know how you use these beads too!
