Beads are most commonly measured using the metric system. Measurements for the beads are detailed in the description. A USD dime measures 18mm in diameter(across). A USD quarter measures 24mm(almost an inch). So a 2mm bead is really tiny and much smaller than a 12mm(almost 1/2") bead.
Approximate(rounded off) size conversions:
3.2mm = 1/8 inch
4.75mm = 3/16 inch
6.3mm = 1/4 inch
9.5mm = 3/8 inch
12.7mm = 1/2 inch
15.9mm = 5/8 inch
19mm = 3/4 inch
22.2mm = 7/8 inch
25.4mm = 1 inch

Gauge is abbreviated as ga or g. The higher the number the smaller the gauge. The most commonly used jewelry wire gauges are 18-24 gauge. If you are just starting out, those gauges are nice to have on hand. 24ga is smaller than the 18ga. Other gauges are used for jewelry too. Enchanting Beads stocks wire in gauges 10 through 34.
Some common conversions:
18ga ~ 1.149mm (0.04")
20ga ~ 0.812mm (0.03")
22ga ~ 0.644mm ( 0.025")
24ga ~ 0.511mm (0.02")
26ga ~ 0.455mm (0.016")
28ga ~ 0.321mm (0.013")

There is a possibility of delayed shipments to Canada beginning early July 2016 as a result of an ongoing labor dispute at Canada Post. This disruption will potentially affect any shipment handled by Canada Post. This includes mail sent via the United States Postal Service (USPS) as that mail is transferred to Canada Post of final delivery. Please check with Canada Post for the postal updates.
While Enchanting Beads will continue to ship orders from our Canadian customers, please plan ahead for the possible long delivery delays.
Ready to ship in 1-2 business days.
