Spacers are always useful to have around for your various jewelry designs. These gold Metallite® spacer beads offer a wide variety of design options, all for an inexpensive price. They're a great alternative to metal, especially when you want something lightweight. Use them for earrings or craft projects. 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.
