Uniform size and shape make Delica® beads perfect for precision work. There is absolutely no better bead for brick and peyote stitch projects. A 4-gram package will contain approximately 800 beads and a 7.5-gram package will contain approximately 1,600 beads. All Delica® beads are a uniform size 11/0.
Metal plating will wear off with use. To extend the bead's life, use artist's fixative, available in most arts and crafts stores.
