Miyuki recently launched a new seed bead product called magatamas. We carry the very popular "long" magatamas (4 x 7 mm). They have an oval shape and an offset hole, which makes them great for creating little petal-like dangles on your jewelry. The amount of glass in this product is significant, so the magatama beads really sparkle, as more light passes through these glass beads.
SmartBeadShopping™ Tip: Our generous 10 gram tubes will contain about 88 beads per tube. Many standard bead weaving techniques can be used with magatamas. Try a right angle weave, for example. You'll find a bracelet Karla did with magatamas in our weaving and stitching videos.
