Red Heart Glass Beads are very large 42mm (1.7 inch) and sold in lots of 2 pieces. These beads are competitively priced for use in mosaic art. They are about twice as thick as most of our brands of glass mosaic tile, and that means they will stick up above the surrounding tiles, but raised element can give the surface of your mosaic visual and tactile interest.
This is a problematic question because beads was intended to be used as an accent instead of as area coverage. One bead is about 1.7 inches across.
Red Heart Glass Beads are thicker than most of our glass tile, but they are still flat and easy to grout.
