Have fun with these Metallite® animal components. You'll find tiny butterfly beads, sea animal charms and more. These components are extremely lightweight and inexpensive, making them perfect for earrings, crafts and jewelry projects for beginners. These Metallite® animals work for everything from charm bracelets to bookmark dangles, so use your imagination. Metallite® looks like metal, but it is actually a high quality plastic jewelry component. Each piece is created by pouring plastic into a mold and then plating it with a metal finish. All of our Metallite® beads go through an extra plating process to increase durability.
