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. Use brushed-finish metal 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. "Large Hole" varies by industry and company: our definition of large-hole beads is any bead with a hole 2mm or larger.
