    Hi Lindsey!
    Great question! All of our silicone beads will fit on the beadable bar. For our acrylic beads the listing will only indicate if they will NOT fit on the beadable bar. We hope this is helpful. Happy Crafting! Xo

    Will a bead with a 2mm hole fit on the bar?

    Hey Stephanie!
    We are so glad you enjoyed the tutorial! We used saucers, 12mm and 19mm rounds for our example. Happy crafting! Xo
