Preciosa pip beads measure 5x7mm. They are perfect for making kumihimo pieces, flowers and clusters and creating a “scale” effect. The hole size on a pip bead is about 0.6mm.
Use them on their own or combine them with seed beads and other small beads such as superduo beads to create some stunning designs.
Making a Kumihimo Pip Bead Bracelet
To make a kumihimo bracelet the pattern below calls for 30 beads per strand on an 8 braid weave, however in our experience this creates quite a large bracelet (approx 22cm or 8 3/4 inches including a kumihimo toggle) so if you have smaller wrists you may want to reduce the quantity of beads down to 25 per strand.
We sell our Preciosa Pip beads in bags of 60 beads.
Service rating : Excellent service ,speedy delivery superb quality. Product : These are gorgeous, really good quality can't wait to try them . The colours work well together. They are for a Kumihimo bracelet for a gift.

Becky has created this gorgeous bracelet design inspired by Pantone's Colour Of The Year - Ultraviolet. We love the combination of the dusky purple shades, but this bracelet will look fab in so many colour combos!
