Delica Beads

Delica beads are cylindrical in shape and have very thin walls, as opposed to the rounder, thick-walled seed bead. They line up perfectly in loom and in off-loom stitches such as Brick or Peyote, with the thin walls and large holes allowing for multiple thread passes through each bead. Delicas give curved stitches such as a Spiral or Rosette a more angular shape and lend good definition to Herringbone weave projects.

Delica beads are an excellent choice in any Loom, Peyote or Brick project because they are so precise. They make any pattern line up perfectly and give a clean, crisp finish to any project. 

There are several metallic coated Delicas that seem to cost a whole lot more than any of the other colors. On these beads, the glass has been coated with actual precious metal by a method that makes them very durable and they come in a variety of metal types such as 24K yellow gold, silver, 24K white gold, and palladium. Because of the pricing on these beads, always buy them from a reputable dealer.
