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.

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!
