Versatile, Great-looking, Lightweight BeadJune 30, 2011
I love Metallite! I discovered silver-looking plastic beads about a year ago. I'd been pretty "snobby" about any non-vintage plastic beads. About a year ago I picked up a glass and metal bracelet, and discovered it it was a mixture of acrylic, Metallite, glass, and real metal. I loved the design, and really loved the weight!
ArtBeads is the only place online that I've seen these great beads. I ordered just a few of these little spacers 2 months ago, and was so impressed I immediately ordered more (a lot more), in this shape and several others. This shape is still my favorite.
I recommend you try these beads, and the others: they are inexpensive enough to keep a lot of varieties in stock. If you only make finished products with metal beads, practicing with Metallite is still a great idea.
