Our designer tile beads come in clear ziploc bags.
It takes about 3 grams to complete a regular size bracelet.
The best cord/elastic is either .5mm or .7mm clear stretchy cord.
We use needles to thread .5mm elastic through our beads. They have a hole that is .8mm, so you can't thread .7mm elastic with a needle. We also use a bead mat with a measuring tape to complete our projects.
BEADS LISTED IN OUR DESIGNER SECTION ARE NOT MANUFACTURED BY MIYUKI.
Sizes are the same as Miyuki.
Full tile (TL) 5mm x 5mm, half tile (HTL) 5mm x 2.5mm, quarter tile (QTL) 5mm x 1.25mm.
The majority of our beads are made of glass and the finish is sprayed on. As with all beads, there's always a chance of fading as time goes on. The less water and chemicals you put on the beads, the longer they will last. Some beads fad faster than others. There may be slight imperfections in the coloring, sizing, and finish since these are always different batches that we receive. Please note that these beads weigh heavier than Miyuki beads, directly impacting the amount of beads per gram you will receive. When we send out beads, we do not count the number of pieces, we simply weigh the beads into grams.
