Enjoy browsing through our gold 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. These 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.
