11/0 Delicas are 1.8mm in size. These are sold
in 10 gram tubes, though some more expensive colors are
in 5 grams tubes.
This size Delica is sometimes listed as 12/0, because they
are the same size as 12/0 Seed Beads. 11/0 Seed Beads are 2.2mm
in size, and these Delicas are closer in size to the 12/0. They
are called 11/0's because they are used interchangeably with the
slightly larger 11/0 seed bead. They are interchangeable with the
larger bead because of the shape difference.
Delicas are very tiny sliced tubes, and are somewhat like working
with blocks, instead of balls. They are widely used in
the making of amulet purses.
Most people select delicas by code numbers to go with
project patterns, so our selection is ordered by Series Number.
There are approximately
1900 delica beads in a 10 gram tube.
About interchanging delicas and 11/0 seed beads:
If you were creating an eye-glass leash with seed beads, and standing
against the light, you would see the uneven shapes of the sides
of these beads. If you used delicas, you would see a solid line
of color. When people view a solid line of color, they view the
piece as higher end.
If you were showing your leashes in a higher-end $60.00 market,
and used seed beads, your leashes might look cheap. If you were
your leashes in a lower-end $20.00 market, and used delicas, people
would tend to avoid purchasing these because they would seem very
If you were creating a bead-weaving like an amulet bag, and used
seed beads, you would see gaps of light between each bead in the
finished piece. If your piece were a solid color, they would look
less intense. If your piece were a pattern or a picture, they would
look less sharp.
you used delicas in your beadweaving, these would lay together
like a brick wall -- no gaps. If your piece
were a solid color, it would look more intense. If it were a
pattern or a picture, it would look sharper.
Also, if you tried to move your piece, the one with seed beads
would feel stiff, because the ridges on the outsides of the beads
catch on each other. With delicas, your piece would feel much more
like a piece of cloth.
