Bead Counter set for counting Size 11 Delica beads. Includes 4 counters for 50, 100, 150 and 200 beads and a free stand to store all counters (counters also available separately).
Have you noticed that that Delicas are sold by weight and not by quantity. This can be a little confusing since different finishes of Delica can make a big difference on how many beads you get for a certain weight. For instance, while the average tends to be 200 beads per gram, sometimes you may only get 180 or less beads.
When beading a pattern, you tend to always require a certain number of beads (even though some patterns will give you a weight, this will just be an estimate). So, what happens if you want to change a colour and you need to ensure you are going to have the correct number of beads on your board, for instance you are going on holiday, going to bead class etc
Of course, it is too time consuming to count the beads, they are just so tiny…. until now!
We decided to find out if it was possible to create a counter that works for Delicas, and after quite a lot of proto types we have finally succeeded. Just pour some beads on to it, give it a shake and you have some beads perfectly counted.
Made from birch plywood and clear acrylic these bead counters have been created just for Size 11 Delica beads, to make it easy and quick to count small quantities.
The following bead counter sizes are available: 50 beads (approx. 0.25g), 100 beads (approx. 0.5g), 150 beads (approx. 0.75g) and 200 beads (approx. 1g). And as a special offer, if you buy all the counter sizes in the set, we will give you a FREE stand in which to keep them tidy and to hand.
