UPDATED to include all NEW COLORS thru 2013

When MIYUKI first developed Delicas, they were primarily intended for use as a loom-weaving bead, and even now in Japan, the majority of people using Delicas are making woven tapestries which are matted, framed, and hung on the wall just like we do with needlepoint. Under these conditions, dyed and/or galvanized beads are fine because they are out of direct sunlight and protected from skin oils etc. Problems only arise when such beads are used to make jewelry. [above from B. Kahn @ Caravan Beads]  Some colors just cannot be created in glass without dyeing. 

Please note that although only Delicas are listed below, all MIYUKI beads with the same color and/or finish, should be assumed to have the same durability as the Delicas.

The three categories of risk MIYUKI lists for Delicas:

A  colors which might change and/or fade due to bright sun or tarnish
B  colors which might rub off from friction or contact with skin acid
C  colors which might alter or fade from dry-cleaning.

0 There is no problem in usual use.
- There might be a problem in durability by individual use.
X There is not strong durability, attention is required by use.
