Base-metal beads work for you in a number of ways! Use basic metal bead shapes to complement centerpieces and color elements. Use metal spacers, heishi and disks (wafers) to created needed breathing room between larger beads. Lead-free TierraCast® BeadAligners™ provide spacers with a hollow peg to keep large-hole beads from wobbling when strung on smaller cord! Use wire beads, brushed-finish beads, filigree beads, fancy metal beads, animal beads and more as focal beads, texture and main design elements. Our secure online store offers a wide range of options in many different metals and finishes, including brass, pewter, silver plate, gold plate and gunmetal. We also carry both solid-copper beads and copper-plated beads.
