This is the new, two-holed, flat square bead from Miyuki.  They measure 5mm X 5mm X 1.8mm.  We pre-ordered today for July, so hopefully we have more luck getting our full allocation of these great little beads.  This is going to be a really exciting innovation bound to spark a thousand and one new design ideas.  We will be getting 30 colors in, including ‘Light Caramel Ceylon’, ‘Green Iris’, and ‘Crystal’.
They will be versatile for use with jewelry and embroidery, but we have seen them used on bags and they look fantastic, especially done in ‘checkerboard’ designs.  We’ll load up the photos for a sneak preview of colors before July- we wouldn’t expect you to wait that long:)
