Beads size question?


Recommended Posts

A lot of people use pony beads on yarn...but I find those unattractive. I'm not sure what to tell you what to search for.


I LOVE 8/0 glass beads (with the silver lining) on my thread projects...I am reminded of what Kristina said just a day or so ago..."makes it pop"!! ;)


I don't care for the look of plastic pony beads either, no matter how well they are made. There are glass pony beads out there, and some that sites call "rollers", and one with an Indian name...more or less the same thing (large enough for ww yarn) but very pretty. Just remember they are pretty heavy!

The link at the bottom of this post gives a picture of one. You can get them at any craft or fabric store. I know Joannes carries them. They really work slick for doing this. They are a piece of equipment I wouldn't do without and I string lots and lots of beads.


Yes, yessss!!! The BigEye needle is a must have for beaded crochet! Its certainly saved me many, many hours of stringing woes!! LOL

Fire Mountain is a great place for references too. Here is a link to a chart on their site on the size of seed beads. :)
