What is a Pony Bead?

Pony beads, also called crow beads are drum or barrel shaped beads, usually made of plastic and characterized by a large 4mm hole so that many types of stringing material can fit through the hole, including braids of hair. It is believed that native indians used beads to decorate horse related gear and sometimes braided them into the horse's mane. The most common type of pony bead measure 6 x 9mm and has a 4mm hole. The shape of pony beads are like fat tires. Modern variations of this classic bead include the mini pony bead which is 4 x 7mm. Mini pony beads are a great match with round alphabet beads, while the regular 6 x 9mm size is good with 7mm cube alphabet beads. Jumbo pony beads are 8 x 11mm in size, they are fun chunky beads and are great with 11mm alphabet letter beads. Another version of the classic pony bead has facets on the surface that reflect light. Pony bead shapes are also a option that include hearts, flowers, butterflies and stars. All pony beads are very popular for a large variety of arts & crafts and jewelry making projects. These beads come in many different colors and are economical, especially for large bead projects or group bead projects. Pony beads are available as individual colors or bags with mixed colors.
