Long Magatamas (LMA)



Miyuki long magatama (or LMA) beads are very unusual with a beveled shape.  They are cut on an angle back to front, which gives them their pointed, somewhat slanted appearance.  With a hole near the top much like drop beads, their beveled cut makes them look almost like leafy thorns or flower petals.  Worked together in clusters, they can have the appearance of pine cones, dragon scales, spikes or trees.  Depending upon whether you work them all in one direction or in varying directions will drastically impact the effect you achieve.  

LMA beads are superb in Kumihimo braiding, fringe, embellishment, or leather wrap bracelets.  LMA beads measure 4×7 mm with a hole of 1.4mm
