Miyuki Delica 11/0 Opaque AB Cylinder Bead: Opaque AB beads are made with glass which do not allow light to pass through them. The AB process is then applied which give the beads a rainbow effect. Opaque AB beads are shiny unless they have an additional matte coating. All of our opaque AB beads will have a “Op” or “Opaque” and “AB” in the description for easy identification.
The Aurora Borealis “AB” effect covers the base glass with a rainbow of color, which can be more or less visible depending on the darkness of the bead.
Miyuki Delica 11/0:
Manufactured in Japan, and world-renowned for their quality, Miyuki Delica’s are the industry leader in cylinder beads due to their meticulous craftmanship. 11/0 are among the most popular of the four sizes (15/0, 11/0, 10/0 and 8/0) which are available in more than a thousand colors and finishes.
Miyuki Delica’s are precision cut glass with a rounded surface and two flat ends. The diameter of the hole, .8mm is large in proportion to the size of the bead, which enables you to pass through the bead with a needle and thread multiple times.
Brick stitch and peyote patterns come out clean as the rows and columns of Miyuki Delica’s line up uniformly to create a flat surface, and highlights your pattern designs in stunning detail.
NOTE: There may be a very slight variation in the length of the beads, usually 3-4. For the best overall quality of your design, take your time to sort the beads by length and be meticulous by using the same size bead in each row of your design. This practice separates the beginners from the advanced beaders and reflects in the quality of your work.
