These brass beads have large holes and are ideal for using in making Native American jewelry.  The 1/4" beads are ideal for bracelets and chokers, and the 5/16" beads are great for breastplates.  

The hole on the 1/4" bead is about 3/16" and the hole on the 5/16" bead is almost 4/16" or 1/4".  There are approximately 1,000 beads per bag for R-279-1/4 and R-279-5/16.  

The R-326's are sold by the kilo, each kilo containing 592 beads on average, and have 2/16" or 1/8" holes.  They were 8mm when measured from side-to-side (not hole-to-hole). Now, the beads we are getting are closer to 7mm as per the picture above.

Please Note: Sizes of the beads and holes are approximate.
