Miyuki Round Rocailles 11/0 Opaque Matte AB Seed Beads: Miyuki Opaque Matte AB seed beads are made with glass which do not allow light to pass through them. They have also been tumbled or treated with acid to create a frosted exterior finish. All of our opaque matte AB beads will have an “Op” or “Opaque” and “Mt” or Matte” along with “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 11/0 Seed Beads also known as Round Rocailles are donut shaped beads similar to Czech 11/0 seed beads and created by Seiichi Katsuoka in 1949, which and was later passed down to his son Hiroshi who added innovation to his fathers passion and began creating new styles which resulted in the founding of MIYUKI; Japan's first successful mass-producing bead manufacturing company. Since then MIYUKI has been continuing Hiroshi's innovative drive, and have gone on to produce amazing products including Delica's, Drop Beads, and Twisted Beads to name a few. MIYUKI glass beads are now considered to be the "world standard" for their high quality, brilliance, and uniform shape and are highly sought after by fashion designers, artists and bead fans alike.
- With more than a thousand colors to choose from, and new colors being created every year, artists around the world prefer Miyuki seed beads over the typical Chinese or Czech seed beads for projects which require a lot of precision work.
