These are the probably smallest and largest glass bead in my collection.
Needless to say, that both had been bought online Razz  (really like the tiny one)

Quite a difference ! Shocked 

I wish Troll would make the size a bit more standard.

Jup - a „slight“ difference in size might be there Wink I actually love the black one, looks like something from an Alien Movie Smile

That is fun to see the difference in size. Laughing The darker one looks like eyes peering out of the dark pale

I'm fine with there being a difference, but wish the listings always gave the size.

I like my beads larger. I have a mate to your David and it sits in my bead box--so small...

I like them both! How big is Goliath? 16 mm? I do find the bigger ones hard to use on a bracelet, okay on a necklace.

Ok, if you look really, really close, you can tell they might not be exactly the same size Laughing

I like them both regarding the pattern, but for me it's always the smaller beads.

It would be really great if there would be a kind of classification like s / m / l or something. I hardly ever buy glass beads anymore, because it's almost impossible to find the size you like online.

As the ones here in my country have to have price labels with weight (considering it's jewelry) I only get those under 2.0 grams in weight! Very Happy

Interesting. The shops have to weigh the beads? or do they come from Troll with the weights on the label?

I love your Goliath. It reminds me of a party.

They don't come from troll with anything. Just bare like everywhere else. But as the policy of selling the jewelry is very strict here. Each and everyone of them must have their own label with their barcode weight and name and etc. I may find a picture tomorrow if I haven't deleted all of them. If I will find any I will post here. Smile

Edit : yes shops themselves have to weight them!

That wo be great, I honestly don't like huge beads, I prefer them to be much smaller, so that would help to but on line!

Maybe not as huge. Without measuring I'd say it's a 15 mm +, but it looks rather prominent because of the opaque black base. I've had it in my beadbox for years and could never work it in a combo because of the size.
