Miyuki Seed Beads or Rocailles – Size 8/0.
The larger Size 8/o (approx. 3.0mm in diameter) compliments the smaller seed beads and adds further dimension to the work.
Many of the popular colours and finishes of the size 11/o beads are available.
Also many of the colours are matched with the Miyuki “Delica”
Buy in convenient small packets which vary in weight depending on the finish and style.
This method ensures all packets of each colour and finish are priced alike and they are marked with the weight per packet, allowing the customer to make their choices accordingly.
As there are approximately 39 beads per gram weight (possibly more but never less) an estimate of the number of packets needed for each colour can be readily made for a given project.
Of course there are bulk bags of size 8/0 seed beads available, mainly in 100gm lots but with 50gm or 25gm bags supplied for the more expensive colours and finishes e.g. Gold Lustered and 24kt Gold plated beads respectively, if larger quantities are needed.
