Delica bead color conversions
September 23, 2016 at 10:20:14 PM
I have noticed on the pattern maker that many of the colors have different names than the recent Miyuki color list. It is hard to search by number for many of the sellers. So, I've tried searching by color name as well as number.

Many bead sellers don't have a search that will take the numbers either. Usually have to search by color name. Like taupe is no longer a color used by Miyuki bead sellers. It'll come up as khaki, gold, or something else. "DB26 Metallic Steel Iris" comes up as "DB26 opaque metallic luster dark steel" with the sellers. Which took me a while to find in their Delica lists.

I was wondering if there was a way to possibly update the delica lists? I've had to compromize a lot and then find out that the color was there, just didn't have the same name, just the same number (which didn't come up in a number search)

thank you. 

I wouldn't be who I am without an imagination.

Welcome!  Smile

Our Delica lists are directly from the Miyuki site.  If there are changes to the descriptions that were made since we originally made our list, we can certainly and will be happy to make those changes.  Differences between Miyuki's and sellers' descriptions are another issue entirely.

At one point, a bead seller did mention some sellers will arbitrarily change color descriptions for the colors they sell to names of their own choosing, so in that case, Miyuki's color names may greatly differ from sellers' color names.
