I just ordered a lot (and I mean a LOT) of Miyuki peanut seed beads from one of my favorite online bead vendors. I just fell in love with their shape and luster. Now I need some ideas as to how to use them. Anyone have any suggestions? If I design something really cool with them, can I get an article published on Beading Daily?

Totally,

First I want to welcome you to the group. I am glad our family is growing. I take it you do some sort of bead weaving. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I would love to see these Miyuki peanut seed beads. I am not sure I know what they are. Are they new?  Could you provide us with a link to go and take a peek at them. We may want to order some of these ourselves.

Thanks.

Happy Beading!!

I have seen those and wonedered what to do with them myself. I suppose that if you did peyote it would stick up in certain places to make it look neat. Like doing everyother one would be raised. Just a thought.

Welcome to the forum. I have never seen Peanut Seed Beads, can you post a picture so that we can see????  As for an ad on BD, I guess you would have to talk to Leslie Rogalski but I do have a webpage that I just started and I would love for you to share your work and maybe become next month's featured artist.  Make something with those Peanut Seed Beads.

Fusion has them under seed bead shapes. I checked artbeads and FMG, but didn't see them. As far as I know they are fairly new. The first I saw them was a few months ago. I have yet to try them, but they do look neat. I think the magatama ones would be nice looking in a piece replacing the normal drop beads too.

If someone sees a pattern using these let me know!

So that's what those are!  There were some in one of the challenge swap packages but I had no idea they were from Miyuki.  I've never seen them for sale or used more than the few from the swap, but I could see them looking interesting in a stitched design.  Could give the look of cubic RAW without actually doing it, you know?

I'm sure you could submit designs to Interweave, but you'd want to find out the submission guidelines.

ETA:  I did a little searching, and these are made both by Jablonex (Czech) and Miyuki/Matsuno (Japanese).  They are also called "farfalle" (butterfly) beads, and they come in a couple of sizes.  Hope that helps.

I made two pieces with them so far and I like how they line up on beading wire. They make a nice, bold necklace strand. Great beads!

I've purchased something similar to these, but they were called farfalle beads. I only bought a few colors at the last show I went to, but haven't decided what to do with them either !

Hi Sue:

I was so happy to see that there are a lot of interested beaders out there!  I ordered my peanut beads from Fusion Beads (www.fusionbeads.com). They have lots of color and finish choices, and they are not very expensive. I am going to try some beadweaving with them and see what turns up. I'll post a photo or two when I've experimented with the texture of these little nuggets.

Thanks, Lisa

Wow, I'd love to!  I seem to be in the middle of a real creative burst lately and I'm designing like crazy. I'll keep you posted!  Thanks, Lisa

Lisa,

Thanks for the information. I can't wait to see what you come up with your peanuts. I love looking at people are able to design. Seeing other peoples designs is so inspiriting. I also get inspiration from nature and sometimes from my dreams.

 

Happy Beading!!
