Seed beads or rocailles are uniformly shaped, spheroidal beads ranging in size from under a millimeter to several millimeters. Usually rounded in shape but now also come in cylinders, seed beads are most commonly used for loom and off-loom bead weaving, and bead embroidery. They may be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewelry. They come in a staggering array of colors and finishes. We have selected a few specialty seed beads to showcase online.
