This spring Toho introduced the new Takumi line of size 11/0 seed beads. They have unusually large holes making them a deluxe resource for beadweaving. The holes are 15% larger than a traditional size 11/0 bead. With such a large stringing hole, you can make more passes through the bead and you also have the advantage of being able to use thicker stringing materials in your designs.
We offer these in 3" large tubes, holding appx 14 grams of beads. Each gram has appx. 125 beads in it so a tube holds 1750+ beads!
We are announcing a Takumi Challenge!
Winners to be announced in September
Prizes to be awarded!
The details will follow but we wanted to make the announcement to give people time to plan their entries.
The idea is to make something out of Takumi beads. Other bead sizes can be used as well, just make sure the Takumi's are proportionally the main bead used. You can make anything of your choice, but items made that take advantage of the beads larger hole will get extra attention from the judges.
