I was looking around at our local bead store today & realised that I don't know what size the real Golden Beads are!
The beads that I thought 'looked right' were 6mm (& not *perfectly* round which I have heard people mention before can be a problem when you try to make the thousand cube). But, of course, the 6mm beads x 10 for a ten bar didn't make a 10cm long ten bar... I don't know if this is a problem or not?
Can anyone help me? There were 10mm beads but they looked far too big to me & the 10 of them still only managed to be 9.5cm long anyway!
Love to hear your thoughts especially if you have made them yourself or have a real set to measure against!
