I have worked with seed beads in years past but never kept things labeld as to sizes or types of seed beads. I have seed beads the same size as this and alway thought they were 15/0. Now I have some projects that call for 15/0, I'm wondering if I'll be able to see the holes. I wear trifocals now and struggle to see the small holes. But these 11/0 sure were pretty and I got my project completed and am planning my next.
Nice pearl shine. A color for every bead box.
These beads are beautiful, but are noticeably larger than the TOHO colored beads (lustered cherry and lustered blue) that I used to make a flag bracelet. I had to keep adjusting tension to get the sizes to work together.
The good guys always wear white?
Coupled these white seed beads with black for beaded bead "soccer balls" in a necklace/earring set. Went well with the black beads.
