Silver-lined beads are a transparent bead with a silver-lining in the center. This silver-lining brightens these beads into a flashy, glitzy option. The silver 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 silver-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.
