Miyuki Seed Beads.

Colour Name: Duracoat Dyed Opaque Moody Blue

Colour No: 4479

Colour Remarks: I have tested the Duracoat Dyed for 2 weeks on my wrist followed by 2 weeks round my neck and found that the colour is retained very well, yes it was slightlly paler and more matt (as the duracoat coating had been removed), but compared to the duracoat galvanised colours which come off in 3 days on my skin,  its really good, and all the Opaque Dyed Duracoat colours combine well with one another. Sometimes in the  Opaque Dyed Duracoat range the holes in the bead are not as big, as normal Miyuki beads presumably due to coating.

A note of caution, this bead is dyed / coated / plated and  like all dyed/plated/coated items, the dye/plating/coating may wear off, dependant on how much wear/friction the bead is subject to.  Do not leave in sunlight or colour will fade.


Size:15 (15 beads to the inch) 1mm long x 1.6mm diameter.

Size  11  (11 beads to the inch) or 1.3mm long x 1.7mm external diameter. 

Size 8   (8 beads to the inch)  1.99 long x 3mm external diameter.

Size: 6 (6 beads to the inch) 3.2mm long x 4.5mm diameter.


Seed beads have rounded ends, and a smaller hole in the middle: a delica bead is like a cylinder with a larger hole in the centre for more needle passes. 

Made in Japan, Miyuki glass beads are the best, most consistent size, and less rejects than any other manufacturer. This will make  your beadwork look more even and you won't have to spend time looking over your beads to discard small and large beads, that you find in Czech or Chinese manufactured beads.  Which means they're worth it, and as all ladies know, we ARE worth it!.
