BEADS AND ATTACHMENTS

This page last updated June 9, 2016.

MILL HILL GLASS BEADS come in different sizes, but the primary size is size 11. In some old books and charts they are called "MPR" beads; also, some older charts list the colors with letters such as "T" or "K" after the number. The letters are no longer being used, but the numbers and colors have not changed. Now available is a printed color card of all Mill Hill beads, for fifty cents. Please note, however, that beads do not appear in numerical order, or even by bead type (i.e, antique, frosted, etc.) on this color card; rather, they are grouped by color families. This can make it difficult to locate a bead by color number.

Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads are size 11/0 beads (2.5mm). Most colors come in 4.54 gram packages, and have APPROXIMATELY 500 beads per package. Exceptions to these quantities are noted next to the applicable colors (quantities are based on information provided by Mill Hill). Available colors of regular Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads are:

MILL HILL Size 6 (3.75mm) and size 8 (3mm) BEADS are larger than regular seed beads and available from us in a limited color range. Quantities per package and prices vary so please inquire about availability of size 6 and size 8 beads. We generally do have in stock size 6 and 8 beads used by Nora Corbett of Mirabilia designs.

MILL HILL CRYSTAL TREASURES and MILL HILL GLASS TREASURES are needlework attachments made out of crystal and glass (a few are made out of plastic). They come in many varieties, and many of them are rarely requested so we do not stock them all and have not listed them on our website. We do have many in stock; if not, we would be glad to special-order them for you. If you need pricing or other information (the price and quantity per package varies according to the item), please let us know.

SEMI-PRECIOUS BEADS AND ATTACHMENTS have an illustrious history as needlework embellishments. For heirloom quality embroidery, why not use the real thing? These beads have been specially selected for uniformity of color, size and quality. Each package contains 12 beads (unless otherwise noted in parentheses).

Price per one gram package of Kreinik gold or silver spangles: $4.60
