MIYUKI has a line of Japanese cylinder seed beads which is larger than DB(11/0) named "Delica precision cut 10/0 (DBM)". DBM features the same proportionate uniform shape, allowing your beaded jewelry to have more impact. 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 Miyuki Delica seed beads 10/0 from Japan are loved for their consistent shape and size and the large clean hole.
Medium Delica Beads (DBM) are size 10/0 cylinder beads. They are slightly larger than the original 11/0 Delica Beads, but have the same even and symmetrical appearance. 10/0 Delica beads can be either smooth or six-sided (hex cut), and measure 2.2mm x 1.7mm with a hole size of 1mm. Count is approximately 108 beads per gram.
The color numbers are consistent between all Delica sizes (DB,DBM,DBL,DBS) Bead-Weaving using the same pattern as the smaller sizes makes a larger finished size, but keeps the detail. This difference is because of their character. The size of DBM is larger for the 10/0 size, so it has made possible stunning bead designs.
These 2.2mm seedbeads are excellent for embellishment and are often used for knitting. Also enjoyed by those who have been working with seedbeads for a while and are looking for the ease of detail given using larger beads. For consistant numbering and sorting, we use a 4 digit color number at BeadFX. DBM-1 becomes DBM-0001 etc.
We invite you to try these exciting new beads. We hope they inspire you to even greater levels of creativity! Most of our Japanese cylinder beads Delica 10/0's are packaged in 7.5 gram tubes.
