Great to use if you are using 20 ga wire.These beads can slip off 24 ga headpins if used on the bottom when making earrings because sometimes the headpin bases varies. I do prefer the small hole SS beads but will use these in other projects.
These are especially useful when the problem of using a bead with a slightly larger hole and slipping off the headpin occurs. They're great little roadblocks. They're useful as spacers as well.
I have consistantly purchased this size and type of sterling silver beads from the company for the simple reason that they are a "QUALITY" product and do not crack or break. They withstand the weight of beads next to them without losing their shape. The "hole" size allows me enough room to double back through it with ease with my type of stringing wire used. I highly recommend this item.
Great spacers in All Cancer awareness bracelet
With the larger hole, easier to use for awareness bracelet.
