15/0 Delicas Cut

Perfect hexagonal-like tubes in size 15/0. Cut with facets for extra sizzle.

MIYUKI has launched a new size which is smaller than DBC(11/0) named "Delica precision cut 15/0 (DBSC)".
The feature of DBS, very fine and uniformed shape, finds beadworks more beautiful and artistic and sophisticated artwork.
We stock a large selection of designer-favorite Delica cut seed beads by number to ensure you get the right bead for creating your jewelry projects, bead weaving and on or off loom beading.
These seed beads from Miyuki of Japan are well-loved for their consistent shape and size.

Delica seed beads are a uniform hexagonal cylinder bead with flat ends and a fairly large hole.
The 15/0 outside diameter is 1.3mm, 1.15mm long with a hole size of 0.65mm-0.70mm and approximately 400 beads per gram.
The color numbers are consistent between all Delica sizes (DBC,DBMC,DBLC,DBSC)

Weaving with using the same pattern as the larger sizes makes a smaller finished size, but shows more detail. This difference is because of their character. The size of DBSC is small for 15/0, so it has made possible minutely detailed bead designs.

These tiny 1.3mm seedbeads are excellent for very fine embellishment. Also enjoyed by those who have been working with seedbeads for a while and are looking for the challenge of using smaller beads. Kind of like doing harder and harder Crosswords and Sudokus.
For consistant numbering and sorting, we use a 4 digit color number at BeadFX.  DBS-1 becomes DBS-0001 etc.  For these we've been using dbc15-0001 for years, but it is the same bead color!
We invite you to try these exciting new beads. We hope they inspire you to even greater heights of creativity!
