COLOR CHART

NOTE:  The finishes/colors on beads that have been metallized, galvanized or dyed, may rub off or bleed with handling.    Please use a spray fixative like Krylon with these beads.

 

 

Transparent beads are clear and tinted, and you can see through them.  Light is visible through the beads.

An AB (aurora borealis) finish is a rainbow effect on one side of the glass bead.

Opaque beads are a solid color.  

Silver-Lined beads have a shiny silver color-lining of a transparent bead.   The bead may be crystal, or any other transparent color.

Color Lined beads have a color lining of an transparent bead.   The colors vary, including special color effects.   The transparent bead may be crystal, or any other transparent color.

Matte (or Frosted) beads have an etched look to them.  

Semi-matte beads have a mixed glossy/matte finish to them.   They are a little brighter than regular matte finish beads.

Metallic and Metallic Iris beads have a metallized finish.   Sometimes, this finish rubs off.   Use a clear fixative like Krylon spray.   

An Iris finish is a multicolor effect, which creates a rainbow type effect all around each bead, but also causes a range of color hues and tones within any mix.

A luster finishes creates an irridescent shine around the bead.

Galvanized beads have a coated finished applied to the glass through a galvanization process.  This finish does come off, so we suggest you use a clear fixative, like Krylon spray.

Ceylon beads have a pearlized finish.   Sometimes the pearlized finish has been dyed to attain a particular color.  

Alabaster S/L Dyed beads started with a silver-lined translucent bead, and then dye the bead to a certain color.    As with all dyed beads, we suggest you use a clear fixative, like Krylon spray.

Hex-Cut (cuts) or 2-cut beads have 6 faceted sides to them.

A Sparkling finish has a bright glow, as if clear nail polish were applied to the bead.

 

Japanese Glass 15/0 Seed Beads (Miyuki)


COLOR CHART


Japanese 15/0 seed beads are available by 12-15 gram 3" tubes.   The beads in this section are made by the Miyuki company in Japan.

Czech beads are superior in everyway to similar beads from other nations, such as India, Germany, and France, except for those of Japan.  Japanese beads are more consistent in size (both in outer diameter, and inner diameter), and usually have more durable finishes.  This consistency in size is extremely important, especially if doing intricate, very detailed bead work.  The inside holes are not as sharp or jagged as those beads from other countries.  Japanese beads are considerably more expensive than Czech beads.

Different companies in Japan make seed bead and related small glass beads.      These include,

Matsuno
Miyuki
Toho
