A: Miyuki is a world-renowned Japanese seed bead manufacturer. Yes, all of their seed beads are made of glass. They mix raw materials in a 1400C furnace to make melted glass. Then they use compressed air to blow them into a tube shape. After cutting them, the highly involved process includes rinsing, washing, and enhancing with various coatings. The result is a highly consistent bead in terms of shape, color, and material.
All Miyuki mixes sold at Auntie's Bead are made from 100% Miyuki seed beads.
