Japanese glass beads have been around for many decades. The major producers are located in the Hiroshima prefecture, a historical industrial region of Japan. Compared to glass beads made in other countries, MIYUKI glass beads are generally more uniform in size, shape, and finish. The bestseller from MIYUKI is the Delica® seed beads. These are available in thousands of colors and finishes. They are great for designs in jewelry, costume, decoration, and accessory.

Established in 1974, MIYUKI is of the leading seed bead producers. Products are usually in-stock. If an item is out-of-stock, MIYUKI usually require 3 to 4 months for production. Please feel free to check with us if you require a large quantity of any product. At this moment, we also carry TOHO, another Hiroshima glass beads producer.
