How to calculate Seed Bead sizes:

The higher the number, the smaller the bead.
Seed beads sizes are stated as strung beads per inch.

3/0 beads would be 4 per inch,
about 1/4 inch thick each.
(Crow rollers, pony beads)

6/0 beads would be about 8 per inch,
or 1/8 inch thick each.
(The popular "e" bead)

15/0 beads would be 18 per inch,
1/18 inch thick each. (Tiny)

This is a general guideline - seed bead sizes are still a little tricky,
even for me sometimes!
