New! Miyuki Delica beads
We recently launched our new line of Miyuki Delica beads! We are featuring 50 of the most popular colors in the 11/0 size (approximately 11 beads per inch). Utilize these fantastic, high-quality beads for your weaving or looming projects. They are very consistent in size and color and have a large hole that allows for the thread to pass through multiple times without breaking the beads. Whether you are making intricate woven designs, or using them as spacers with your Swarovski crystal, these beads are a must-have. Don’t forget to pick up your Nymo thread and needles to insure the quality and durability of your finished project. To check them out, go to the Seed Beads section of the web site.

Q: What makes Delicas different from other seed beads?

A: It is a common mistake to call Delicas seed beads. They are really a bead in their own right. The difference between the two is basic: seed beads have rounded edges and Delicas do not. The edges on Delicas are not rounded in order to make the hole larger and more accessible so that a needle and thread can pass through multiple times for bead weaving purposes. Delicas are also incredibly uniform, which means they line up nicely when weaving with them. It is also interesting to note that while all Delica beads are made in Japan, there are actually three different companies that manufacture them: Miyuki, Toho and Matsuno. Miyuki Delicas are more expensive, because they are the most consistent in size and shape. Toho Delicas follow, with Matsuno Delicas being only slightly better in quality than regular Czech or Chinese seed beads.
