The look and feel of .925 sterling silver, gold fill, and silver fill can't be matched for crafting fine jewelry. Gold and silver are considered both precious and noble metals because they have a high economic value and high resistance to corrosion. Choose from a large selection of sterling silver beads, silver-filled beads and gold-filled metal beads for your best designs. Basic shapes and spacers include seamless, superior-quality round beads. Silicone-Lined SmartBeads allow you to "lock in" sections of your design. Other options include metal beads with a sparkly stardust finish, flighty wing beads, cool bead frames, and a wide array of embellished shapes.
