8/0 Japanese Seed Bead, Frosted Metallic Gunmetal Iris
Japanese 8/0 seed beads are wonderful medium sized beads that have many uses. They are halfway in between a smaller 11/0 and a larger 6/0 seed bead. They are great for bead weaving, peyote stitch, bead embroidery, Kumihimo, waist beads or as spacers in between stones. Japanese seed beads have more consistency and larger holes than their Czech counterparts. Frosted beads are also called Matte or Mat.
