This PDF is an updated list of the durable Delica 15s 'Safe Beads' I have compiled based on the Miyuki Durability Bead List. This PDF lists the 131 durable Delica 15s by MFG #. I also have a PDF that lists the durable Delica 15s by Color. Look for my 2 other ‘Safe Beads’ PDFs for the Delica size 11s also listed by Mfg # and color.
I don't suggest any dyed or galvanized beads in my patterns, based on the Miyuki Durability List, because they fade and the color rubs off with time. Satin/silk beads are also left off this list because they tend to cut the beading thread and they break very easily because they are thinner than other Delicas. The colors of my designs are only suggestions, but please try to avoid dyed, galvanized and satin beads in your jewelry, so you won't be disappointed later. I want your beaded art to last forever.
This PDF also lists the finishes of the durable beads and they are also coded as to whether they will either pop or recede in your beadwork. The P or R after the Delica 11s Mfg # represents whether the bead (P)ops or comes forward or (R)ecedes. PR or RP indicates that the bead can either pop or recede depending on the type of bead finish it is next to. Refer to this list when you want to change the suggested colors of my patterns. This PDF also has an inventory column to jot down your personal notes on colors. Print the PDF to take with you when bead shopping. Some customers have even downloaded the PDF to their blackberry.
Thanks for visiting and checking out my designs. I hope you find my designs interesting and stimulating, as I love to dabble in geometric, abstract, repeat patterns and tessellations. You will have conversational pieces of art when you wear my designs. I have 100s of patterns to list, so check back often so see new ones. BEad HAPPY! Bead Well * Bead Much * Bead Often
