Wavy Rectangular Bead Frame
Beautiful bead frame that I used to make my Alyssa bracelet. My12mm Amethyst bead and 2 - 2mm faceted round beads fit perfectly in the frame. Next project the Alyssa necklace.
It's a beautiful bead frame that is best used as a center piece in a bracelet. I found the price to be a little much for it's size, but it makes up for it on the craftsmanship.
This item is not cheap, but it is well made. The finish is excellent, and there is a good amount of metal in the item. It has a nice heft but is not too heavy. Useful for bead framing mainly. It could be used as a toggle maybe, but the hole on the end would show, and there is no bar provided. It holds a 12mm cosmic bead with the addition of 2 2mm faceted rounds on either end. The size works for pendants, necklaces, and bracelets. For earrings weight is a consideration if you add too many beads.
Interesting and futuristic
This is my favorite bead frame from Artbeads. The design, shape, size, and weight are just perfect for making bracelets for both men and women. Over time, the dark tarnish on the frames adds an antique look to the jewelry piece. This frame is heavy and strong enough to be used as a toggle clasp for bracelets. For earrings, the rectangle shape and wave design give an elegant and futuristic look. This design is also great for creating pendants, and ideas are endless.
