One of Emily’s faves, Czech glass seed beads are her go-to for bead crochet. Because they are less consistent in size and shape than Miyuki Japanese seed beads, Emily likes how they give her beadwork a nubbier, more textured look. In a sweet, opaque pale olive color (close to Pantone Luminary) they will add a spring green to your designs. On the larger size for an 11/0, give them a try in peyote and other seed bead stitches as well as bead embroidery. We suggest size 12 beading needles and KO. Made in the Czech Republic.
Sold in hank of six 20” strands, approximately 2,000 beads/18 grams.
Note: Sol Gel is a Preciosa-brand specialized coating that is similar to Duracoat and provides more color permanence to beads. Sol Gel protects the beads from exposure to sunlight, water, cosmetics, body oils, and acids. The colors are fade-resistant and washable in temperatures up to 100 degrees fahrenheit.
