Raw Copper Beads
Raw copper beads and bead caps have no plating or artificial coating. Raw copper is also known as bare copper, and is easy to antique (oxidize), or can be enameled with medium-temperature, medium-expansion vitreous enamels (such as our Thompson Enamels).
Use a jewelers saw and a tube cutting jig to cut copper tubing into custom-length tube beads. Curve them into a gentle arc with bracelet-bending pliers, or a sharper curve with ring-bending pliers.
