I like to core and cap these beads with silver to add a finished look.  When lining these beads, I recommend using soft or annealed tube.  There are several options available but the tube I would use is from Rio Grande Jewelry Supply.  https://www.riogrande.com/product/999-Fine-Silver-587mm-Seamless-Tubing-Soft-12-Length/100937
