Love using these to slide over 1x2mm & 2x2mm crimp beads for a beautiful finished look. They are a lovely simple SS bead & work nicely when needing to pass 2 or 3 strands of wire through, depending on size of beading wire of course. I can pass at least 2 strands of 49 strand .019 or .018.
I love those beads - I got them from here in all sizes from 2mm to 6mm. I use them in my wire wrapping, The hole is huge, and can easily pass four 20 ga wires, which works great for bails or other projects where you need to pull the wires together.The probably won't work very well with the thin stringing wire, and should be used on a rather thick beading chain or cord if you were to use them for beading projects.
I use these a lot ! I love the large hole as it allows me to pass a chain through them to make bracelets or necklaces.Great looking and great price too !
I love to use these light weight sterling silver beads with my polymer clay.
