I love beads! As a life-long creator of pretty things, I became a lampwork artist specializing in creating wearable glass beads back in 1999. I have been an artist for 24+ years however.

It turned out I liked playing with and handling beads, just as much as creating them. This lead to the birth of the jewelry making supply half of Enchanting Beads. I import all my Bali and Karen Hill Tribe silver direct from Indonesia and Thailand.

I have a long established website (www.enchantingbeads.com) that is known for carrying quality beads and findings along with my hand-made lampwork beads.

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
