15/0 Delicas

MIYUKI has launched a new product which is smaller than DB(11/0) named "Delica precision cut 15/0 (DBS)".
The feature of DBS, very fine and uniform shape, allowing your beadwork to be more beautiful and artistic and sophisticated artwork.
We stock a large selection of designer-favorite Delica 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 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 350 beads per gram.
The color numbers are consistent between all Delica sizes (DB,DBM,DBL,DBS)

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 DBS is small for the 15/0 size, 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.
Many of the patterns in Laura McCabe's book on using Rivolis and other crystal components call for size 15/0s.
For consistant numbering and sorting, we use a 4 digit color number at BeadFX.  DBS-1 becomes DBS-0001 etc.  But, we've been using DB15-0041 for years, which is the same bead!
We invite you to try these exciting new beads. We hope they inspire you to even greater heights of creativity!

Most of our 15/0 Delica's are packaged in 5 gram tubes.
