Glass Eyes – Clear 6mm – 14mm
A pair of traditional glass eyes that have been handmade to a high quality in England with stainless steel hoops for inserting. These see-through eyes are intended to be used in collectable teddy bears vintage bears, needle felting and art dolls. These eyes look particularly good when making calico rag dolls.
As the eyes are made with clear glass, you are able to add a personal touch to them by painting the backs of the eye with glass paint or even sparkly nail varnish!
These eyes also work well in Fimo creations and, because they are made from glass, withstand the heat of an oven
The hoops on the back of the eyes have been flattened to enable the clip to be squeezed together after the securing thread has been attached. This makes as small as possible profile to the clip creating no damage to the weave when the eye is fitted to the bear head.
You can buy single pairs of eyes or, to save a little money,packs of 5 pairs, or packs of 10 pairs of eyes.
These eyes are available in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 14mm sizes and give a wonderful finish to many crafts, not just bear making. If you are unsure how to insert glass eyes, look at our How to do it…. page
NB Glass eyes are not ‘safety eyes’ and are not intended for use in toys for children.
