Available from Beadworks UK, a truly beautiful range of Japanese Rocailles which can be used to create many exciting pieces of embroidery, bead weaving, and much, much more. Very high quality, they are more uniform in size and have slightly larger holes than Czech Rocailles of the same size. Due to their uniformity and slightly more tubular shape they are ideally suited for Peyote stitch, loom-work and closely woven patterns
Sizing in seed beads varies, as each manufacturer uses a different way of measuring the beads, generally though the smaller the bead, the higher its size number - so a size 10/0 is smaller than a size 8/0 from the same source. However it is useful to bear in mind that a Japanese size 8/0 will not be exactly the same as a Czech size 8/0. Therefore, if you need the beads to be the same size it is always advisable to buy them from the same category. Some of the coated seed beads are not recommended for use in items that will have prolonged contact with the skin or frequent washing as this may cause the surface coating to fade.
