Hi! I need some advice please. I have an online bead shop. I would like to carry seed beads. What beads and sizes and shapes would be good to start with. Are there more popular colors? Thank you so much! I love reading your articles! Suzie From Suzie's Treasure too

I would say 11/0s and 8/0s are the most popular, and then add 15/0s and maybe 6/0s. Both cylinder beads like Delicas and donut beads like Czech have their following and uses, cylinders for weaving and donuts for embroidery.

OH, YES!!! Those are the ones! WhimBeads have bunches and bunches in all colors and sizes... I'm so stoked I don't know what to buy first... : )

Thanks so much for the help, I'm hooked on you and your site...

Big Hugs,

I love Whimbeads -- they're my top choice for seed beads.

Beyond Beadery is another great place. They even let you know which colors are dyed/may not be colorfast.

I will add them to an updated list!
