At The Bead Shop we have a multitude of Miyuki Long Magatama Japanese seed beads to choose from. The brand name Miyuki is well-known in the beading world and has positive connotations with quality and production.
Often described as petal or dagger-shaped, these 4x7mm elongated beads have a 1mm hole at the top for threading and are even in shape and size. The hole has been drilled at an angle meaning when the beads are hung they are presented in a slightly more unusual way.
The length of Magatama beads provides a larger surface area adding more dazzle and depth for beads with reflective finishes and more colour presence for all others.
They are available to buy in packs of 10g with around 82 beads in each pack.
The Magatama Seed Bead collection at The Bead Shop is an explosion of colours waiting to be beaded. If you already know the tones and shades you want then you won’t be disappointed with the selection we have.
