Item details

Antique Zinc Metal Seed Beads, Size 11/0, approximately 14 grams in a small tube or bag. As you may know, metal beads are pricier than glass beads, but they are very uniform in size resulting in a very rich looking piece of jewelry. They work especially well in bead weaving and bead embroidery.

These beads are solid metal. They start out with a brass base, and then are heavily plated in the various finishes. Almost all metals will tarnish and most plated metals will wear with time. Oil on our skin, humidity or exposure to the elements, or excessive rubbing will speed up this process. To slow down or prevent the plated finish from changing color or rubbing off. some suggest using a sealant such as Krylon or Permalac Sealer, Renaissance Wax, Future floor wax or other protectant/sealer. Metal seed beads all have a seam and on a very few beads (mainly the larger size 6 size), the seam is not closed properly. These few beads need to be discarded.

Metal seed beads come in a variety of 14 different colors and all colors will be available in my shop.
