Announcement   I am switching over to my Etsy site called Beadsite which is my company name, so most listings are there. Please check it out. I will slowly be closing down this site.

These are ceramic based beads - so a clay bead is made in a kiln, then coated in a layer of copper, fired in the kiln again and then coated in a layer of fine silver (approximately 99.9% silver)or 24K gold or more copper. It is a much thicker layer than plating on metal. I liken it to dipping a biscuit in melted chocolate :)

The beads have a nice weight to them. They are unlikely to cause allergic reactions in folk that are nickel sensitive. Remember, as they are covered in real silver or copper, they can be patinated in liver of sulphur. They are extremely hard wearing, beautifully shiny and as they tarnish over time they can be lightly buffed up with a silver cloth. If you look at my feedback you can read comments from my customers who absolutely love these beads when they see them up close. They are chunky and just a bit different to using Bali or Thai silver. They work really well with lampwork beads in particular.
