Plant Shapes

Metalized beads consist of a milky white plastic core and metallic coating. They are very affordable and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and patterns. Metalized beads can lend to a desired "chunky" look without adding a lot of weight. The metallic coating tends to chip off with frequent wear, but they are great for costume jewelry that is not intended for everyday use or for children's projects. Metalized beads that have been antiqued with a varnish stain tend to hold up better than those that have not, as the varnish forms a protective shell over the metallic coating.

Description: These pearl and gem chip strands were such an awesome and delightful find! We imagine you will be equally delighted with these gorgeous and affordable strands!A Pearl's life begins as a foreign body embedded within a mollusk's shell. The animal's defense against the foreign body is to form a protective layer of nacre around the intruder. The culturing process simply entails planting a "seed" within the mollusk, normally either a plastic bead or a small piece of shell, nature takes its course and a new pearl is born.
Cultured freshwater pearls look amazing all on their own, and also pair fabulously with Swarovski or Preciosa Crystal beads. Standard strand length for pearls is 16 inches, unless otherwise stated. String them on silk beading cord and always either knot in-between each pearl or use bead bumpers to protect them from scratching. Freshwater pearls are known for their small holes, so use a pearl reamer if you require a larger hole size. Always remove pearls from original strand.
Pearls displaying a soft peach, cream, mauve or lavender tone are typically a natural color. White pearls are often bleached, and any other color is usually obtained through a dying process. Be certain to check for color fastness, and rinse before wearing.
Freshwater pearls are a natural material and variations in size, shade, and shape are to be expected.
