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.
Everything is packed and delivered beautifully, but I always have trouble finding my way around the SRB website. I buy most of my beads and jewellery findings online and use loads of sites regularly but this site is difficult for me.

They are always courteous and get the orders delivered very quickly. Always 5 stars from me big thumbs up. The only thing that I would like them to do is label the name of the item especially the semi precious gemstone and crystals. Thanks Daniel
This Ginko Bead bracelet was designed on of our lovely customers - Amanda Clark. We love the way that the GemDuo beads nestle neatly in between the Ginko beads, it's a great way to combine this season's hottest new Czech glass shape with the classic diamond shape of the GemDuos.....
