Manufactured in Japan by Miyuki, the 8/0 seed bead is a great go-to bead for so many of our projects. Size-wise, it is about about the size of a 2 mm glass bead. We love how it looks laddered with our C-Lon Cord and, with a generous hole, very adaptable to macramé using .4mm Chinese Knotting Cord. There are 12 beads to an inch. Sold in tubes of 22 grams. Approximately 950 beads. Check out Tricks to Looming and Beadweaving to see how we use 8/0s.
