These glossy white porcelain (ceramic) letter beads with black letters are popular for name bracelets created with linked eye pins and colorful spacer beads. They're also available with the numbers 1-8. (Turn the 6 around to get a number 9, and use the letter "O" for a zero.) We have a few clearance-priced black and gold letter beads, too.
Great for making all types of personalized jewelry -- especially long wrapped bracelets for moms and grandmas, with all the kids' names and coordinating colors!
Since at least the 1950's, these sweet little letter beads have been popular for creating baby name bracelets (with the addition of little pink or blue spacer beads, or birthstone color spacers). Now that more is known about the dangers of babies and beads (choking hazards, etc.), we know it's best for babies and toddlers to only wear jewelry long enough for a photograph or carefully-monitored special event, and then store the jewelry safely out of babies' reach.
