Magatama glass seed beads

25 Oct

When we first starting researching which materials we wanted to use for our Kumihimo bracelets, we noticed a longer glass seed bead among the common round glass seed beads. We loved the look. Now if we could find the bead!

We went on a search to find these unique beads in the local stores of San Diego. We quickly learned these beads have several descriptions; dragon tooth, dragon scales, long seed beads, 4×7 Magatama, peanut. It seemed each store had a different name for it. Even calling ahead didn’t work since the Magatama beads are called so many different names if they said they had magatama beads, we would arrive at the store only to find out if was either the wrong bead or they had one or two colors of it.

Next we researched the Internet and lo and behold, there they were. We now order the Magatama beads almost exclusively online. We love the shape, texture and array of colors in these beautiful beads. To view our kumihimo bracelets with Magatama beads…CAAZandeffect
