Here at Clarke Palmer we use a myriad of colours of Preciosa and Miyuki glass seed beads for our jewellery. We normally use 4mm and 3mm in size and different finishes and many different colours. A lot of time is spent sourcing the perfect shades for our pieces - especially for the ombré designs .
Both types of beads are precisely made and of regular size - Preciosa traditionally made in Czechoslovakia and Miyuki in Japan.
Some of our favourite beads are Miyuki Picasso which have a painterly marbled finish. We use these in a various aqua shades, earth shades and pale primrose.
