Re: Chosen the right bead
I'm not really sure but, I think the bead size corresponds with the diameter of the eye of the hook you are using. If the small hole end of the bead catches on the eye of the hook then it could be used. If the bead is too big the bead will slip right over the eye of the hook.
It would depend on how much weight is needed to get desired results. I'm sure some one who knows will let you know.
