Hama Beads are small, hollow, melt-together beads that can be used to create wonderful designs and beautiful artwork. 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.
