Miyuki Long Magatama beads are unique petal shaped beads from Japan. These 4mm wide x 7mm long beads work great with Kumihimo.
With long magatama beads you can create truly three dimensional texture with a striking layered effect. Lean all the magatamas in one direction to create a sleek 'scale like' design or mix them up or a organic look.
In addition to Kumihimo, Long Magatama beads make lovely drop beads when used in stitched beadwork. Also, if long magatama weren't eye catching enough they also contain extra glass that really makes them really sparkle. We have over 70 different colours of Long Magatama beads, browse today!
