Miyuki Seed Beads or Rocaille Size 11/0
Size 11/o (approx. 1.9mm in diameter) is the most popular size for the rocailles.
There are a myriad of colours in different finishes for these delightful beads.
Many of the colours and finishes match the Miyuki “Delica” Beads.
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 110 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 11/0 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.
