Japanese seed beads are the highest quality seed beads you can buy. They are the recommended choice for any embroidery or bead weaving projects. Japanese seed beads are the most consistent in size with smooth edges and have a larger hole than other seed beads, suitable for any seed beading projects that require multiple passes of thread through the beads. Seed beads are sized by number, the higher the number, the smaller the bead. Please note that the weight of the tubes is an approximation only and can vary slightly depending on the type of seed bead and the finish.
