Take the Takumi LH Challenge

What is a Takumi LH? If you haven’t heard, Toho launched a new seed bead this summer. Takumi LH beads are the size and shape of a size 11/o seed bead except that the hole diameter is over 15% larger.  How much more thread can pass through? Take the challenge and see for yourself. Our record is 16 thread passes!  Imagine the design possibilities this spacious, barrier breaking bead can create.

Dark Bronze

This season, dare to pair any colored metallic with dark bronze (color number 14415).  A color palette staple, bronze is and always will be a timeless shade of shimmer.  Trends have continued to evolve into an elegantly liberated hodge-podge of mixed media and unconventional color pairings.  Check out this essential color in our expanding shape selection including its transparent alternative, Bronze Illusion (04415).
