Check out these lightweight Metallite® bicone beads! Some have facets designed to catch the light, while others display an old-fashioned appeal. These Metallite® beads are an inexpensive way to achieve the look of metal, which makes them a good choice for kids or beginning beaders. Metallite® beads look like metal, but they are actually high quality plastic beads. Each bead 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.
