Glass Beads -TOHO Round 8/0 Japanese Seed Beads
Matte or Semi-Glazed Type Finish
Beads with a matte finish are done with chemical etching or tumbling. When used on transparent or translucent beads the finish looks frosted. On the metallic beads the finish looks similar to raku fired beads. Semi-Glazed refers to beads with a partially matted, lightly textured finish that brings out an earthy glow.
Toho beads are designed to have a larger hole that allows for more pass throughs of threads. The larger hole also creates lighter beads which give you more beads by weight.
