Often times, especially if you're new to beading, it can be hard to know the size of the beads you're looking at online. Different computers and resolutions make it difficult to determine sizing by pictures you come across on the web. If you've come across this problem, there is an easy solution.
We have just created a printable beading ruler that should help solve all your sizing problem. Simply click on the image of our bead ruler to download our printable pdf file. The pdf will show up larger than actual size on your computer, but once printed will give you an accurate way to gauge sizing.
*It is important that you set your printer to print at actual size in your print settings

Thank you for this bead measure. I'm always guessing and assuming I know the size. I always disapoint myself. This will be a great help. Thank you

Thanks alot for a very useful tool. I put a protective coating on mine so that it would keep in good shape. I made two of them, one at work station, other in my purse.
