Glass Eyes – Dark Smoked Topaz
A pair of traditional glass eyes that have been handmade to a high quality in England with stainless steel hoops for inserting. The eyes are intended to be used in collectable teddy bears vintage bears, needle felting and art dolls.
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 also work well in Fimo creations and, because they are made from glass, withstand the heat of an oven
The eyes come in a variety of sizes and colours 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.
