Delica® Bead - Brand name for a variety of seed bead manufactured exclusively by Miyuki of Japan, using computer-controlled machinery to create extremely consistent beads. Delica seed beads are the same size in all dimensions, with large holes and thin walls. Some beads will be smooth cylinders, others will be six-sided "hex-cut" beads. Delica seed beads are popular with bead-looming and bead-weaving projects, as they create a finished product with a smooth and consistent surface.
