The smaller the beads, the more detail you can get. But yes, those tiny beads are hard on the eyes. I believe Ott Lite makes a magnifier which is worn hanging from the neck, making it hands-free.

George Horse Capture

George Horse Capture of Ft. Belknap has passed on. He was 75. I knew of him from the museum world where he worked to change the way museums relate to the Native peoples. He will be missed by many.
