I was asked how big the beads are that I used on my teaball.
As you can see, Rita's teaball is quite a bit bigger than mine.
My teaball is two inches long and Rita's is three inches long, so any size teaball will work beautifully.
Now, I'm not sure how to measure a bead, but mine, the seed beads are #11 and the main beads are about 4 mm.
The crystal beads on Rita's teaball are about 6-7 mm, so I guess the bigger the teaball, the bigger the bead to give more coverage.
I hope helps you to decide what size beads you should use if you make one of these teaball ornaments..
