Delica™ Beads Index
(11o and 15o)
Delica beads are manufactured by the Miyuki Shoji company.
They are available
in several sizes. The most commonly used size is the 11o/12o Delica. These unique,
cylindrical beads with their luscious colors revolutionized contemporary
beadwork. Since more and more designers are listing DB color numbers
for their patterns, the lists presented here are organized by DB# for
your ease of use.
BeadStorm sells its Delica beads in 5 gram tubes. Each tube
0f 11o Delica beads
at least 800 useable beads. Each tube of 15o Delica beads will
contain at least 1650 beads. We sell the 5 gram tubes because many
designs call for small amounts of beads. Having only 5 grams will allow
you to spend less money per color. If you need more, just order a larger
quantity of a color. If you are purchasing 10 or more tubes of assorted
Japanese Delica beads, we will apply our Bead Bazaar discounts
at the time of the sale.
