Micro beads in action - inspirations for beaders

In my recent post on tiny size 18/0 seed beads (micro or grain of sand beads) I asked beaders who were using these tiny delights if they would like to share their creations here. I haven't yet heard from anyone who is using the tiny Size 18/0 in their beadwork but feast your eyes on some lovely pieces Etsy Beadweavers have created using Size 15/0 seeds beads.

Thank you for including my necklace, "Sweet Serenade." I love using various sizes of seed beads. The smallest of seed beads, the 18/0 through 22/0 are harder to find than ever, but bead artist desires to work tiny has at least made 15/0 more available now then they were even a few years ago.

I've never seen size 18/0 beads. These are beautiful pieces using size 15/0. I can't imagine using beads this small!

Thanks Glenda for letting me be a part of your blog. I should say though that the photo of the Lady Slipper is the REAL flower photo that I had in my listing to compare with the beaded one. Only Mother Nature makes them that good!

Beautifully done post! And I learned a great deal about my teensy bugles in the process. Thanks.
