SJ Designs glass seed beads are the finest quality made in Japan by manufacturers Toho, Matsuno and Miyuki. 3mm Crystals, the new Faux Agate, Faux Stone and Quartz Glass beads are made in the Czech Republic. As our focus is needlework, some of the bead finishes may be too fragile for other uses including jewelry-making-- galvanized finishes may rub off with repeated wear and dyed colors may fade if exposed to strong sunlight. Since most needlework projects receive careful treatment, the delicacy of some bead finishes is not usually a matter of concern for stitchers. Please contact us if you have any questions about the suitability of a bead for your project.
