New Coatings at Czechbeads

We've been adding all sorts of surprises to the website lately. Here's a look at one of our newest colors -- Misty Rose. You can never have enough shades of pink beads to choose from and this coating is a nice, subtle color that's similar to French Rose. Czech coated/dyed beads have gained in popularity over the years because of their improved quality and color variety. They are not known to fade or flake under regular use. Colors are more consistent between batches compared to colored glass cane because there is more control during the manufacturing process. The shade does, however change slightly across the different shapes and sizes depending on the depth and distortion of the bead itself.

3mm Magatama Collection


Yet another Toho category expanded this week! Stocked by customer demand -- We've had a limited color and size selection of magatamas on our website for a while and have had many requests for more color, especially 3mm. If you've been dragging you feet about carrying magatamas because of their limited availability, wait no more!

Magatamas are similar to drop, or fringe beads, but are more versatile. They have a large, off center hole and narrow top, which allows them to hang nicely and nest together next to each other.

View the entire selection here.

49 colors are now available -- here's a highlight of some of the new and notable colors. We've really beefed up our selection of pinks and purples! A wide variety of metallic and iris finishes are also available; perfect for matching and accenting other bead styles.
