Quite similar to brick beads, Rulla beads are rectangular in shape but rounded corners. They feature two stringing holes, making them versatile options for seed bead weaving and embroidery. Try them in between two strands of beads. You’ll love the way these beads add complexity to your designs. You can stack Rulla beads going up, similar to when beading with brick beads.
