what size bead do you need?

no caliper? no problem. 

all of our bead strands, findings, and even some tools, have relevant measurements in the title and description of the listing. if you need a reference guide for what exactly "4mm" means, you've come to the right place! 

 

 

unless the height of a bead is more significant to the design than the width, the measurement of the width of the bead is what comes first in our listings. when you see "4mm Pickled Egg Polymer Clay Strand," that means that the polymer disc is 4mm wide. all of our polymer clay beads are approximately 1mm in height, but vary from 2mm-10mm in width. in the image above, an 8mm, 6mm, 4mm, and 2mm polymer clay disc strand are shown.

 

 

picture this: above is a side-by-side of one of each of our wood strands. including rounds, rondelles, and even our triangular shaped wood beads. hopefully this helps make the big picture clear.
