SmartBeads with BPS were made in the US by one specialist who recently passed away, and no one else at the company is able to replicate his work. We found a new source (with a new name: Silicone-Lined Bead Stoppers) and they're on the way!
Easily hold beads in place using silicone-lined bead stoppers.
Each bead contains a silicone rubber gasket inside its hole. The hole in this inner rubber lining is small, but it expands to hold the bead securely in place on a variety of wire and cord. (Click into each item, for details about the sizes of wire & cord that it works best with.)
Silicone-line beads stoppers can be re-positioned over and over again. Change your design daily by simply sliding the beads into a new position!
Styles with a 0.5mm hole work well as "keepers" for ear threads and French hook ear wires.
