Magatamas are fun shaped beads that are similar to drop beads in that the hole is at the top of a drop of glass, but the drop is somewhat flattened and rounded at the base, giving it a pleasing shape. Perfect for ending tassels, excellent for use in bead embroidery and charm bracelets. The magatama shape has historical significance in Japan.
Toho size 4mm Magatama seed beads are packaged in 3" tubes, holding approximately 14 grams.
