These Metallite® number beads are a great way to keep important numbers handy. You can use them for jewelry designs or craft ideas like greeting cards or scrapbooking. 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. Please Note: Volume prices apply ONLY to individual numbers that are the same. You cannot mix and match different numbers for the volume price discount.
