Default bead sets - how many beads?

so how many beads do you include in a set?
I have always worked with, ten main set beads and ten matched spacers.

Yep, I used to do 8 main beads and occasionally spacers but I've gone down to 6 main ones. It lowers the price so people are more apt to buy them. There are LOTS of people pricing their beads REALLY LOW and so it's brought down the average bead price. Sad ... but true! Love your beads!!

I like 1 focal and 6 coordinating beads. It's also nice to have 2 smaller ones for a matching pair of earrings.

Just my thoughts.

^^ this. LOL

Also many buyers make earrings, they have "extra" beads left over a lot of times. So pairs and 6-bead sets for me.

Or focal and 6 coordinating spacers.

I aim to please
