Preciosa Traditional Glass Czech seed beads come in a range of colors and finishes. They are ideal for jewelry designs, decorative embroidery, and traditional artwork.
Traditionally, the smaller the number, the larger the bead. So, an 8/0 ("eight aught" or Size 8) bead is larger than an 11/0 ("eleven aught" or Size 11) bead. The size measurements historically correlated with how many beads would fit into an inch when lined up side-by-side, so approximately eight Size 8 beads would fit in one inch. However, this is just a general rule of thumb, as there can be variances in size based on the manufacturer, the type of glass used and the bead's finish.
