Topics: Seed Beads, Counts

Q.
Is there a way to get close to the right number of seed beads for a project without having to count them? I have a project that calls for 240 and I really do not want to dump out the entire vial.

One way to get the approximate number of beads that you need without counting them individually, would be to weigh a small amount then multiply by proper multiplier. For example, 24 Delica 11/0 beads weigh 0.1 grams. Multiply 0.1 by 10 and it equals 1 gram. Weigh out enough beads to equal 1 gram and you will be very close to the amount of beads needed for your project.
