Opaque seed beads are not transparent or translucent; instead, these beads offer solid blocks of color to jewelry designs. Measuring about 3mm x 4mm, these beads act as excellent spacers between larger beads. They can also be straight strung to create bold beaded necklace and multi-stranded bracelet designs. You can also use them in woven bead designs and a variety of craft projects from knitting to embroidery. However you choose to use them, you will achieve bold pops of color in all of your jewelry designs.
Bead Designer's Tip: Use your color wheel to select a triad or quad of complementary colors to create a bold strung or woven piece using size 8/0 opaque seed beads.
