Bead caps are used to enhance the style of beads, either with one on one end or one on both ends of a bead. Bead caps can be used to showcase bigger beads within your designs or you can add them to dangles. They nest up nicely with beads to draw the eye to particular beads. Not only do they provide more decoration to your designs, but they can help break up color palettes and add complexity to a look. You can also layer them together to create all new styles. Here we have paired bead caps in different styles, sizes, and colors, with Swarovski pearls in different sizes to show you how bead caps can dramatically change the look of your piece. Don't forget to check out this Artbeads Cafe episode for more inspiration and help using bead caps.
