The AB in “Crystal AB” stands for Aurora Borealis, a coating which reflects light and creates a rainbow of sparkling colors, much like those light shows in the sky at Northern latitudes. Over a clear crystal base with a silver lining, the AB coating creates a bead that is simply sweet. Manufactured in Japan by Miyuki, the 8/0 seed bead is a great go-to bead for so many projects. Size-wise, it’s about the same size as a 3mm glass bead but with a generous hole (1.1mm), it’s adaptable to so many laddering and beadweaving projects. We recommend it for Tapestry and Pathways...two favorite projects.
Sold in tubes of 22 grams (approximately 850 beads).
