These great quality GLASS seed beads from Taiwan measure approximately 3mm across and are great for all purpose use in projects for beading, craft, etc.
Inside colours can be really interesting, and add a lot of sparkle to a project! The outside of the bead is clear transparent, and the colour is inside. One thing to beware - excessive restringing or passing through with needle can reduce the inside colour. You may also sometimes find a totally clear one in your batch. This is normal and you just need to remove it from your beads before you begin your project. Also, the colours can eventually fade if left in strong sunlight or in heavy wear areas.
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 8/0 seed beads may bead up to approximately 3.5 metres.
