Seed Beads

Japanese cylinder beads are a thin walled, large holed glass seed bead. The large hole allows for many passes of thread, while the cylindrical shape leads to consistency in size and shape. Japanese cylinder beads are frequently sold in size 11, known by the brand name of Miyuki Delicas. We have over 500 different colors of Japanese Delicas in vials.

Japanese seed beads are less consistent and a little rounder than the cylinder beads, but they are still cylindrical shape and come in a large variety of colors and sizes. Japanese seed beads are most frequently found in size 6, 8, 11, and 15. We have 80 colors in size 6 Japanese seed beads, 250 colors in size 8 Japanese seed beads, and 600 colors in size 11 Japanese seed beads.

Czech seed beads are rounder than Japanese seed beads and are less consistent in size. We carry 300 colors in size 6 Czech seed beads and 150 colors in size 11 Czech seed beads by the hank. A hank of seed beads consists of 18-20, 20inch strands bundled and sold as an entire unit.

We also carry a limited selection of size 13 Charlottes by the hank, size 11 Charlottes, size 8 seed beads and size 12 Czech 3-cuts by the hank.
