TOHO™ Color Durability

There are unfortunately some instances where you will need to be careful with your precision cut glass Toho beads. We have created a handy chart for you that explains which color codes you should be careful with and why.

To read the chart below, you will need to be somewhat familiar with our Toho product codes. Here is a breakdown of the parts. The first two letters always start with TB which equals Toho Beads. The second two letters are the shape, which could be RD for round, BG for bugle, or many more. The number(s) after the first four letters is the size, 8 for 8/0, 6 for 6/0, etcetera. The hyphen is just a separator. The last set of numbers and possibly letters is the color code. This is what you'll want to focus on and what the chart below uses. The color codes are consistent throughout the shapes and sizes. So, TBCB4-21F is the same color as TBRD8-21F.
