Miyuki Magatama Beads
SOLD BY THE BAG OF 100 BEADS!Japanese long Magatama beads from Miyuki continue a centuries-old tradition of the Japanese beading. These glass beads are teardrop-shaped, measuring about 4x7mm, with an offset 1.5mm hole. These are the Miyuki "LMA" series (long magatama).
Sold in a package of 100 beads, approximately 12 grams.
Because of their unique petal shape, they sit at angles in your design, offering an interesting texture.
If you are making a bracelet such as the one shown here, you'll need about 290 beads for an 8˝ inch bracelet (including the clasp). Since these bracelets have a larger diameter than typical kumihimo beaded bracelets, plan on making them about an inch longer than your normal length.
