Miyuki is Japan's oldest seed bead manufacturer. Their Japanese seed beads are world-famous for being high-quality, uniform in size and shape, and available in a wide variety of beautiful colors and finishes.
Size 5/0 beads, also known as E beads, are the largest glass seed beads produced by Miyuki. Measuring 5x4mm, with a hole diameter of 1.6mm, they are easy to hold and string. There are approximately 7 beads per gram and 7 beads per inch. The size and shape of Miyuki 5/0 seed beads (E) also make them great for children and beginners.
E beads are perfect for knitting, and string easily onto most worsted or finer weight yarns. They add texture, color and shine to any fiber project. E beads slide effortlessly onto leather cord, creating the perfect Boho look. They are an excellent choice for a macrame bracelet strung on hemp or nylon cord.
Note that Baroque style beads come in a 10g tube. The baroque coating may flake off or have residue on beads.
