Miyuki Delica Beads – Size 11/o Round tube.
The smooth cylinder beads are regular in sizing (1.6mm long x 1.5mm dia.) with a large hole (0.8mm) for easy threading.
The bead worker has the choice of hundreds of colours or finishes with which to create the most stunning pieces.
Buy in convenient small packets which vary in weight depending on the finish and style.
This method ensures all packets of each colour and finish are priced alike and they are marked with the weight per packet, allowing the customer to make their choices accordingly.
As there are approximately 150 beads per gram weight (possibly more but never less) an estimate of the number of packets of each colour can be readily made for a given project.
Of course there are bulk bags of delica beads available, mainly in 50gm lots but with 25gm bags supplied for the more expensive colours and finishes e.g. 24kt Gold and Palladium plated beads, if larger quantities are needed.
