Magatamas

Miyuki magatama beads are available in two sizes, 4mm magatamas and 4 x 7mm "long magatamas." Traditionally magatama beads were comma-shaped beads or jewels made in prehistoric japan from clay or stone. The more modern take on magatama seed beads tends toward weaving into kumihimo patterns, and other types of off-loom beadweaving.
