Opaque Cherry - 15t - 45a


These are size 15 Toho seed beads from Japan. Size 15 is smaller than size 11. Size 15 beads are often used to cinch in peyote stitch by reducing the size of the beads.

Size 15/0 Toho seed beads measure 1.5mm x. 1.3mm with a .7mm hole size. They are sold in a 14 gram tube (approximately 4090 beads). They are slightly more tubular than round (Miyuki size 15/0 are more rounded.)

00 (the thinnest) or 0 Nymo thread and a size 12 or smaller needle are appropriate for these beads, depending on the stitch.
