DELICA 10/0 RD
Miyuki Delica seed beads 10/0 from Japan are loved for their consistent shape and size and the large clean hole.
Medium Delica Beads (DBM) are size 10/0 cylinder beads. They are slightly larger than the original 11/0 Delica Beads, but have the same even and symmetrical appearance. 10/0 Delica beads can be either smooth or six-sided (hex cut), and measure 2.2mm x 1.7mm with a hole size of 1mm. Count is approximately 108 beads per gram.
The color numbers are consistent between all Delica sizes (DB,DBM,DBL,DBS) Bead-Weaving using the same pattern as the smaller sizes makes a larger finished size, but keeps the detail. This difference is because of their character.
These 2.2mm seed beads are excellent for embellishment and are often used for knitting. Also enjoyed by those who have been working with seed beads for a while and are looking for the ease of detail given using larger beads.
Many Bead Stores will pack their beads in smaller vials and sell cheaper so always compare the weight of the Tube you are getting. Most of our Japanese cylinder beads Delica 10/0's are packaged in 5.2Gram Vials or 7.2 Gram Tubes.
