Our seed beads are produced in Japan by Miyuki – the worlds premier manufacturer of high quality seed beads, also known as rocailles. Miyuki Seed Beads Size 6 are the largest of the Miyuki seed bead range we currently stock. This size seed beads measure approximately 4mm in width and 3mm in depth and have a hole size of 1.3mm. For this reason they are great to alternate with fire polish beads. We currently stock over 60 different size 6 seed beads, including the beautiful Baroque Pearl coated 6/0 seed beads.
Miyuki produce a vast array of seed and delica beads with many different finishes. Each finish will react slightly differently to friction, light, cosmetics and detergents. Miyuki have produced a handy guide that you can use to check the durability of a beads finish – you’ll find it here www.miyuki-beads.co.jp
There are approx 12 size 6/0 Miyuki Seed Beads per gram so you can expect to receive approx 240 beads in a 20g tube
