Seed Beads come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They have one hole or multiple holes. The majority of quality seed beads are made in the Czech Republic and Japan. Japanese seed beads come from two large scale manufacturers TOHO and Myiuki. These beads are machine made and machine polished. Toho are lighter than Miyuki beads and have a very large hole in relation to their size. Their uniform shape and size makes them ideal for creating intricate designs. Eureka Crystal Beads offers a large selection of Japanese seed beads and Czech Seed Beads in a variety of colors and finishes. If you are looking for a small, round bead you may also check our 2mm Firepolish beads, which are equivalent to size 11 seed beads, Czech 2x3mm Micro Spacers, or Czech 2mm Pearls, the smallest faux pearls available, and Swarovski Crystal beads in the smallest sizes. All of these beads are shown below for your convenience.
