What are Hama Beads?
Hama Beads are small, hollow, melt-together beads that can be used to create wonderful designs and beautiful artwork.
They come in three different size ranges, Midi, Mini and Maxi, and can be enjoyed by all ages, abilities and genders. They are easy to use and can be beneficial in a number of ways.
Hama Beads may appear as a children’s craft activity first and foremost, but there are many adult bead artists who use Hama Beads to make impressive pieces of art, and may even be commissioned to do so.
They are similar to Perler Beads, Artkal Beads, Nabbi Beads, Pyssla Beads and Aquabeads, and there are more than 50 colours across the Hama Beads range.
Hama Beads are often gifted to loved ones, or used decoratively. They make fantastic coasters, keyrings and fridge magnets. We hear of parents and grandparents all over the world who still keep Hama Beads that were made for them decades ago!
Would you believe Hama Beads were invented 50 years ago by a Danish company that manufactured plastic straws?
They are now the leading brand of melt-together beads in the world.
