lovely but beware
These little guys have a slight yellowish cast, probably due to the duracoat process. small price to pay for durability and give a slightly vintage look to your work.

Perfect little 15's
I love that these are Duracoated. I wish all galvanized beads were. I have had irregular Silver 15's and these are a perfect petite round accent bead.

Questions and Answers

Q: Will these galvanized silver beads turn yellow like sterling silver does? I've been reluctant to use silver beads in seed bead jewelry due to yellowing.
Asked by: Donna - 2/19/2014
A: The problem with galvanized beads is not that they tarnish like silver does, but that the finish can rub off over time and in reaction to acidity in the skin. I have a peyote bracelet I made with metallic bronze seed beads years ago that I wear very regularly and some of the metallic beads are beginning to blacken a bit. That being said, Miyuki is aware of this problem and does offer many of their galvanized seed beads with a Duracoat protective layer that prevents the finish from eroding. They are working to make all galvanized products with this Duracoat finish and we do carry many that already have the protective layer, this particular item being one of them.

Q: do you sell the same miyuki 15 in bright silver?
Asked by: marlene - 9/11/2014
A: That just is the nature of the galvanized silver. The Crystal Silver Lined has more sparkle/shine though only lined in with silver:
