Preciosa 8/0 Seed Beads are highly valued by craft and jewelry makers. These seed beads are very versatile and can be used for bead stringing, crochet, bead weaving and embroidery to name a few applications. Czech beads can vary in diameter which may require some culling if you are doing precision work.
Opaque: These are beads that light won't pass through. These beads can be solid or multicolored and generally have a low to medium shine.
Metallic: These beads are glass beads with a metal-like surface coating. You cannot use metal cleaners on these beads as you may destroy the finish. Metallic coatings may rub off or change color.
