  • A Hankering



    Ok so i was wondering if anyone could give me an estimate.

    Plan on making a beaded Yoke, Leggings, Barrettes and Mocs and maybe a belt.

    Around how many hanks do you think i would need to do this?

    Im so scared to purchase of vendors at events because i would hate to run out and never find same beads to complete project.

    An Estimate if i was using 1 color would be fine. I can factor in other colors depending on design.

      Prolly 11s maybe 10s but prolly 11's

      I'd rather buy off merchant at a powwow, support the independent vendors as opposed to online companies. BUt i dont want to not gt enough and never be able to find more :)

        Blues are hard to match. Other colors aren't too hard to find the same.

        There's a thread somewhere where the coverage in square inches is listed for different sizes.

        Figure your square inches and I'll look for the thread.
        ...it is what it is...

          A hank of 11/o will cover just over 21 square inches.
          A hank of 12/o will cover about 20 square inches.

          Once you find the approximate total surface area to be beaded, divide that by either 20 or 21 depending on the size beads you are using. That will tell you roughly the number of hanks to buy.
