SOME FURTHER INTERESTING INFO-
Seed Bead or Rocaille is a generic term for any small bead. Seed beads are most commonly used for loom and off-loom bead weaving. They may be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewelry. They are also used in various fiber crafts for embellishment, or knit and crochet with fiber or wire.
Seed bead machinery uses glass rods softened to a red heat, fed into a steel die stamp that forms the shape of the bead with a reciprocating needle that forms the hole. Manual and automatic machinery is in use in the Czech Republic. As the steel dies wear eventually, they are replaced.
