Sometimes when you want to use metal beads in your bead work creations, gold or sterling silver beads are not in the budget. Neither do you

want to opt for plastic or glass beads and want a nice metallic touch to your pieces of jewelry. If you are in a similar situation and stuck

for ideas, consider using base metal beads. Base metal beads are made of non precious metals, like copper and brass or alloys like pewter for

example and then may be coated with different colors or with the natural resultant color. They are a great alternative to beads made of

precious metals thanks to the price factor and easy availability.

Sometimes plastic beads just won’t cut it and do not fit in the vision you have for your designs. When metal is what you crave base metal

beads are ideal since they are much more long lasting then plastic and much cheaper than say solid sterling silver or gold beads. They usually

have a gold or silver like appearance and you will also find base metal beads that have been treated for effects resulting in a more vintage

or tarnished look. They are definitely attractive and add a charm of their own to jewelry, either alone or mixed with other materials and

colors. Base metal beads are also popular with those looking to add a little weight and glimmer to their jewelry designs, without the added

price tag of a precious metal.

However, do remember that some people with sensitive skin may be allergic to such base metal products. So, if you are planning to sell your

jewelry made with such beads or other base metal additions, make sure you always specify the materials used. Sometimes you may not be able to

find out exactly what metals have been used, but you can definitely inform your customers that it is base metal beforehand. Nonetheless the

popularity of such kinds of beads continues to grow.

Nowadays, you can find a plethora of beautiful base metal beads that are ready to be used in various kinds of jewelry. You will find different

fancy shapes and sizes as well as a variety of finishes like satin smooth beads, corrugated beads and stardust beads. Base metal charm beads and spacer beads are also easily available. If you need

something fancier you will also find base metal beads with silver or gold plating at affordable prices. Today online jewelry supplies

retailers usually offer stunning varieties of beads in an amazing number of shapes, sizes, colors, finishes and materials as well as findings

to create the piece itself. So all you have to do is go online and browse among these beautiful baubles to find the ones you like best!
