Opaque white and gold solid color glass beads, like the color of fine porcelain, with end caps in contrasting metallic colors. Gold-colored end caps give these beads a Victorian flavor, ideal for steampunk-influenced designs.
The makers of cathedral glass beads find it more complicated to develop new colors in cathedral glass beads than in any other type of glass bead. The end-cap color must be applied to the bead first, then the facets are cut. Metallic finishes cannot be fire-polished, so a semi-glossy varnish has been applied to the end caps to add shine. Size and shape may vary slightly and color may vary from dye lot to dye lot.
