SmartBeads and Silicone-Lined Bead Stoppers
New Silicone-Lined Bead Stoppers! SmartBeads were made in the US by one specialist (who passed away in 2019), and no one was able to replicate his work with the finicky equipment. But now we have a new source for Silicone-Lined Beads / Stoppers. The first few have arrived, and precious metal styles are on the way!
Easily hold beads in place using silicone-lined bead stoppers / sliders.
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 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 French hook ear wire "keepers."
