This Transparent Montana Blue bead is a deep, dark blue, reminiscent of the deep waters of Lake Superior. It contrasts well with other blues and every other color of bead.
The Copper-Lined beads have a copper-lining in the center of the transparent bead. The copper-lining adds an extra bit of flash and shine to some of your favorite colors. The copper inside the bead can tarnish if it is not cared for properly. To prevent tarnish, store beads in a dry, dark place. If there are copper-lined beads on your powwow outfit, allow it to dry before storing it in a breathable container.
Seed beads are a very popular and time-honored option for any bead artist, whether your art is worn on the powwow trail, displayed in a gallery, or adorning a person. They are fairly uniform in shape and size. They can be used in virtually any beaded project, including applique or flat stitch, lane stitch, peyote stitch, loomwork, bead weaving, bead stringing and jewelry making. Since they are so versatile, we recommend using seed beads for beginning beaders, classes, and workshops.
