PLEASE NOTE: THESE EYES ARE BEING DISCONTINUED. ONCE THEY ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE!!
Style #218M is a glass eye with a Matte Finish. It is great for antique looking teddy bears. This is an excellent "medium" quality glass eye with an oval-shaped wire loop. Crimping of the stem is not recommended as you may break the bond between the glass and the stem.
If you need to crimp the wire on your glass eyes...and most/many bear makers do, we recommend our #500 and #560 eyes. These eyes are pre-crimped. The stem also features a small, round "ball" at the end which is inserted in to the glass. The stem thus becomes very difficult to pull out of the glass eye itself.
