At first, it will be better to define what does it mean “hank of beads”. Selling seed beads per hanks is very popular in the United States. Beads hank can be defined in the following way – it is the measurement unit of strands of seed beads. An usual hank has twelve 20″ (51 cm) strands of beads.
Unfortunately, some sellers sell seed beads by the hank, others sell by weight or pieces. It creates some confusions, for example occur the following questions:
- how big is a hank of beads?
- how much is one hank of beads?
- what is a full hank of beads?
- how much weight does hank of seed beads have?
