New! Sterling silver stations
Our brand-new sterling silver stations are in! These stations look like a bunch of closed jump rings soldered together into various patterns. Use them as chandelier forms in earrings, connect them with jump rings and chain and dangle beads off of them for a one-of-a-kind necklace or use them as spacer bars for your new bracelet design. There's no end to the uses for these versatile little components! To check them out, click on the photo to the right or go to Sterling Silver Stations in the Silver Components section of our web site

Q: What's the difference between gold-filled and gold-plated?

A: The difference is in the amount of gold. Gold-plated products have a very thin layer (seven-millionths of an inch) of gold, while 14K/20 gold-filled products must have at least one-twentieth of their entire weight in 14K gold. What this means for you as a beader is that gold-plated items, while cheaper, will not last as long. Eventually the thin gold layer will rub off. Gold-filled items, however, will remain gold for a lifetime if cared for properly. The occasional silver spot is from solder holding joints together. Unless you are using harsh chemicals or abrasives, the gold layer will stay gold for years to come! To read more FAQs go to the FAQs section of the web site or click below.
