Seed Beads Chart

One of the most common questions we get here at Auntie's Beads Direct is just how many beads am I getting in a seed beads package? Well, now that's super easy to find out because we've created this colorfully helpful bar graph!

For the three major seed beads brands, Miyuki, Matubo and Toho, you can see the number of beads in each gram, color-coded by their size. Because of the nature of the beads, the numbers are approximate, but you should find that, even if they aren't perfectly exact, they are very close. 

Note that Matubo is the only line that comes in a size 7/0 and they do not come in sizes 11/0 or 15/0.

I love, love, love this chart. It’s helpful when designing and also helpful when purchasing. I’m fairly new at jewelry-making, so I’m getting ready to start my stash of seed beads. Using this chart allows me to get the right number of beads for a projects. I have a problem finding the round end bars for making multi-strand bracelets and/or necklaces. You only have the ones with the attachments for the individual strands. I’m looking for the round tube with a slit to slide the strands into and then close the ends to secure the strands. Could you get some of these? Thanks for the chart.

I love, love, love this chart. It’s helpful when designing and also helpful when purchasing. Thank you for making such a clear and useful product. I’m fairly new at jewelry making and I’m getting ready to get my collection of seed beads for my stash. I can’t find those round end bars that you slide the strings of beads in when making multi-strand bracelets (or necklaces too I guess). I’m getting lots of coordinated colors to make some bracelets for gifts provided I can find the end bars. I prefer the end bars over the ones with individual tie-ons for the multiple strands.
