This seed bead size is interchangeable with our 11/0 Miyuki beads. 11/0 and 12/0 are practically the same size, and will fit in most bead weaving patterns. Used as the mainstay for most off loom woven jewellery and ornament patterns, they are really popular for their size. The colours available are amazing! Japanese seed beads are also the most uniform in size with large holes so that many thread passes can be made. Of course they are great beads for simple stringing as well as weaving!
