I'm so bummed as I made a flat spiral bracelet and the color on the seed beads that I used have washed off where water got on them..when I..washed my hands... I purchased the beads from Hobby Lobby and they were Bead Treasures Czech Glass Beads 11/0 Light Blue Ceylon.....I got to reading up on seed beads and see where there are some durability issues with some of them.....(Metalic, Galvanized, Dyed, Painted)

..

Now I soak my new seed beads in water to see if the finish comes off but I was wondering if you had any tips on this issue?

..

Also I like the toho seed beads..so I was also wondering if there was a durability chart somewhere for them?

..

Thanks for any help!

Hello Cindy, In the links section of our lovley group there is a seed bead section. There are links for myuki and the last one listed is for Toho beads. It is a sample card for their colors. Unfortunatley it does not list the permanent finish beads. If you are purchasing your Tohos and the company is using the Toho color numbers any thing with "PF" means permanent finish. Toho.net has links to companies that buy directly from them.
