Increase your options with these shiny Metallite® beads! They are extremely lightweight and inexpensive, which means you can use them for projects you normally wouldn't consider. Kids can have fun creating unique jewelry designs, and beginning jewelry designers won't have to worry about making a costly mistake. Best of all, Metallite® beads actually look like the more expensive metal beads they were made to imitate. Each bead is created by pouring plastic into a mold and then electroplating it with a metal finish. All of our Metallite® goes through an extra plating process to increase durability and ensure a high quality product.
