These round-shaped seed beads are manufactured using unique technology for cutting glass tubes with round or square holes into various sized pieces which are then rounded and polished when hot and subsequently classed by size and shape.
The number on seed beads is usually expressed as a fraction, such as 11/0. The first number indicates the number of beads needed to make an inch of beads, so the larger the number, the smaller the beads are. The second number represents the hole size. For example the most common hole size is 0=.9mm.
