Base Metal, Gold and Silver Plated Beads
Our plated beads are made of brass and then coated with a layer of sterling silver or gold. The beads are high quality and most are made in the United States. You'll also find metalized plastic beads which are lightweight beads made of plastic and then coated in sterling silver or gold and antiqued. Our pewter beads are all crafted in United States out of lead free pewter and then given an antique plating of sterling silver or gold. Our silver plated pewter alphabet beads are a very inexpensive alternative to sterling silver letter beads and the quality can't be beat!
