We now carry metal seed beads in our store and on our website. These beads are solid metal. They all start out with a brass base, and then are heavily plated in the various finishes. Unlike the galvanized beads, they do not have a glass base. They are very uniform in size. They are a much more rounded bead compared to the Japanese glass beads.
We have heard really good reports regarding the finish on these beads. However, almost all metals will tarnish.
You can purchase them on our website or in our store.
