8/0 Japanese Seed Bead, Permanent Galvanized Metallic Silver**
Japanese 8/0 seed beads are wonderful medium sized beads that have many uses. They are halfway in between a smaller 11/0 and a larger 6/0 seed bead. They are great for bead weaving, peyote stitch, bead embroidery, Kumihimo, waist beads or as spacers in between stones. Japanese seed beads have more consistency and larger holes than their Czech counterparts. **Permanent Galvanized beads have a much stronger durability compared to regular Galvanized beads. They have an extra coating to seal in the color. PG beads are Toho’s equivalent to Miyuki DuraCoats. Even though the quality is steps above standard Galvanized beads, this finish may come off under certain conditions, like strong impact, continuous friction or use of organic solvents like perfume.
