These Japanese glass seed beads have a wonderful drop shape which makes them very similar to the Miyuki Drop beads, however these Magatamas are slightly larger at 4mm x 4mm and also have a slightly flatter area on the top. Magatamas are also not as round as Miyuki Drop beads and work well in a wide variety of off-loom projects such as Kumihimo, bead weaving and bead embroidery to name just a few.
A hole size of 1.3mm is perfect to accommodate most sized needles and still leave room for multiple passes. If using these droplet shaped beads for Kumihimo then our S-Lon cord works fantastically and is available in over 45 different colours which you can view *here*.
We sell Miyuki Magatama beads in a 24g tube which contains approx. 270 beads, at Spoilt Rotten Beads we do try to stock as many different colours as possible – but please do let us know if there is something you cannot find and we will do our best to source it for you.
