The Preciosa company is renowned for the quality of its Czech seed beads. The knowledge and long experience of its glass makers, combined with its unique modern technology, result in superior production of a wide range of colors and sizes. Many of the world's most highly esteemed jewelry and loom work pieces have been created by using Preciosa Czech seed beads exclusively. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads® feels privileged to have been appointed a direct importer and distributor for the seed beads of the Preciosa company.
Size and shape may vary slightly and color may vary from dye lot to dye lot. Finish will wear off with use. To extend the beads' life, use an artist fixative such as Mod Podge®.
Solgel beads have a coated treatment that protects the color from fade as a result of exposure to sun, sweat, water and cosmetics.
A hank can contain approximately 3,900 to 4,000 beads.
