Copper Beads

The best thing about beads is that they can be made with a variety of materials, including metals. Metal beads have a typically ethnic sensibility;

especially copper beads with their folkloric appeal. Copper with its reddish-orange, almost pink tinge gives jewelry an earthy tone, perfect for

exclusive beadwork.

As a metal, copper is soft and easy to shape. It is also less toxic in comparison to other metals; in fact it carries healing properties. Preferable

for fashion jewelry, copper beads are available in many styles, from traditional round beads to floral, oval, butterfly-shaped and heart-shaped beads.

If you decide to work with copper beads; you can create a line of tribal earrings, necklaces and bangles or a range of progressive ornaments. You can

venture into the costume jewelry arcade or create classic trinkets with a niche of their own. Copper beads are young and urbane; what’s more they are

low-cost items with a high-end appearance.

However, they change color overtime, as a designer you must take such things into account and adapt your designs accordingly. It is extremely important

to capitalize on both, the strengths and weaknesses of the items you work with. Copper beads are more often than not used for thematic creations in the

fashion industry.

The irony of the copper bead is that it represented civilization in the ancient times and in modern times it represents primitivism. It has a sensually

sordid allure and a cool casualness about it at the same time, making the copper bead the greatest paradox in the world of jewelry-making.

Copper beads are personal, in that they can be used for their healing properties, astrological significance or as an element of self-expression. Charm

bracelets are the most individualized items of jewelry and copper beads make striking charms. You can twist round copper beads into wire for

wrist-wrapping bracelets or twine them into wire for exquisite brooches.

Belly chains can be strung with copper beads. You can also make long layered necklaces with them or combine relatively larger beads with spacers for

conventional necklaces. A single copper bead threaded into leather or a metallic chain will do the trick too. Sometimes less is more.

It doesn’t end there, if you design accessories like footwear and belts, you can use copper beads to embellish them. You might think these beads aren’t

glamorous but think again, fashion icons wear them too. There is a growing demand for antiquated jewelry and when it comes to vintage works, copper

beads are as good as it gets.

You can find copper beads online ; get ready to scan through catalogues and pick up the

most unusual, unconventional and unique beads. When you buy your beads though, store them in air tight bags so they don’t lose color before time.
