A word on the seed beads used on Danish; I had the opportunity to see several antique Danish bobbins.  In each case the beads are deliberately set to rise above the surface of the bulb.  I was told this was to help reduce rolling, and while not as efficient as a spangle, if you try it, you will find it does help, especially on a bolster pillow.

There are some legends associated with some of the bulb and head types of Danish bobbins. The sugar loaf supposedly got its name due to its (upside down) resemblance to a common bread of the region. A bobbin with a much larger head is known as a Mayor.

They are not meant for spangling and will NOT be drilled!
