These great quality GLASS seed beads measure approximately 2mm across and are great for all purpose use in projects for beading, craft, etc.
The coating is a baked on paint, so it is durable, shouldn't rub or fade as far as we know. The colours that can be achieved with this finish are fabulous! It has always been really hard to find a pink or purple seed bead that won't fade!
These seed beads are either from China or Taiwan, and are generally not the type of beads that you would try off loom bead weaving with, as they can be somewhat irregular in size, shape and the holes can vary too. However they are often used for loom weaving, but beware, the results will not be uniform. If you think of American Indian woven goods, or the necklaces with several ropes of seed beads holding a shell pendant, this is the style of beading that these beads are suited for.
50 grams of size 12/0 seed beads may bead up to approximately 6.25 metres.
