Standard Seed Beads are opaque glass beads have a nominal diameter of 3.6 mm, which makes them almost as thick as most glass mosaic tile. Sold in bags of 100 grams (~3.5 oz), which is about 1200+ beads. Use these to make lines and details in your glass tile mosaic by gluing them down on their sides. See tips below for making sure the beads are level with the tile.

- opaque glass beads.

A 100-gram bag of Standard Seed Beads covers approximately 25+ square inches (5 in x 5 in), possibly more, but these are best used for outlines and details and accents rather than for area coverage.
These are slightly thinner than glass mosaic tile (~1/8 inch thick), and so if you glue them down alongside tile, they will be slightly lower, but you can solve the problem quite easily by building up the area where beads will go. The easiest way to do this is to apply some glue and let it dry. You can also sprinkle some sand in the glue before putting down the bead. Where there is a will, there is a way, usually multiple ways.
These are too small to make cutting practical.
