The Opaque Light Coral beads perfectly captures the color of delicate, delicious, smoked salmon. This color brings a little spunk to your color palette that will most definitely get noticed. This is the new version of the opaque coral that was discontinued a few years ago. This newer color is noticeably different than its older counterpart. It is also a dyed color, which means it may face with prolonged exposure to sunlight. We DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR POWWOW REGALIA. Since powwow outfits are usually exposed to sunlight for long periods. To reduce fading, store beads in a dry, dark area.

Opaque glass does not allow any light to pass through the bead. This gives these beads a solid look that is still shiny. Opaque Luster beads are shinier and flashier than their regular opaque counterparts. The luster affect tends to lighten the colors a little, so they can be used with regular opaques for shading and depth. Use with matte beads to draw out the shine of the luster beads.

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.
