These Metallite® round beads are a perfect way to add a metal look to lightweight designs. Earrings you create with these beads will feel like they're floating! Use them as accents or the main component of a jewelry design. You'll find round beads ranging from antique designs to contemporary balls. Metallite® beads look like metal, but they are actually high quality plastic. 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.
