DIFFERENT TYPES OF PLASTIC BEADS - Shop for Pony Beads
Pony Beads are a popular type of basic craft bead that is usually 6x9mm in size or shaped sort of like a donut. Because they are economical and come is many different colors, pony beads are one of the most popular types of craft beads.

Round Plastic Beads can be smooth or have a faceted surface that sparkles when it reflects light. Faceted round beads come in several sizes, commonly ranging from 6mm to 12mm in diameter. They can be strung on monofilaments, stretch cord, flexible beading wire or metal wire. Shop for Round Plastic Beads.

Wood Beads most commonly come in round, oval, or barrel shapes. They are beautiful in natural light and dark colors but can sometimes be painted in different colors for more variety. Shop for Wood Beads.

Glass Beads are very popular for jewelry making because of the fantastic variety of sizes, shapes and color. Czech glass beads are a popular type of glass bead, made in the Czech Republic. Millefiori glass beads refer to glass beads filled with tiny flower designs, made from a technique originating in Italy. Shop for Glass Beads.

Seed beads are smaller size glass beads and usually require a needle for stringing. The sizing of seed beads is described in units per inch. For example, a 10/0 seed bead mean 10 beads make up an inch, thus the larger the number, the smaller the bead, so a 15/0 seed bead is smaller than a 10/0 seed bead. Shop for Seed Beads.
