Wire-Hole pearls have larger hole than most pearls, but a smaller hole than all the other beads in this section. (Most wire-hole pearls fit up to 22-gauge wire, including thin base-metal head and eye pins and nearly all precious-metal pins.)
Leather-Hole pearls have a 2mm hole, and are sold by the single bead. Pearl ball beads are a cluster of small pearl beads, woven into a larger bead that has an approximately 2mm hole.
Large-hole gemstone beads from Rings & Things have a 2mm - 2.5mm hole, perfect for stringing on leather cord and cotton cord, or using with 1mm (20#) hemp cord. Our large-hole gemstone beads are sold on 8" strands so you don't have to invest in a ton of each color.
