  • Seed Bead Sizes

    Hi All

    Can anyone tell me what is the largest size in seed beads? All my searches show the largest as 6/0 being 3.3mm. Is this correct?

    I have 3.8mm round beads and they still look like seed beads to me but I can't find a */0 gauge sizing.

    Do I list them as:
    3.8mm beads
    3.8mm seed beads

    Thanks in advance for your feedback

    6/0 is 3.3mm, and is the largest seed bead available. I would therefore do your listing as the 3.8mm beads, which "resemble" seed beads.
