Buying Beads - Go Glam By Going Metal!
Plastic and wooden beads are a thing of the past. Sure, they're fun to use, but have you ever yearned for something new and different? Try metal beads! If you don't exactly know where to start or what kind of metal beads to pick, look no further. Here I not only break down the different types of metal beads, but I also tell you what makes each bead so unique and special in its own way, so you can personally see which bead's for you!
Copper Saucers. These have antique surfaces, making them prized possessions for anyone who are fans of clean and defined style. Very earthy due to the copper, these saucers look good presented in a tribal or industrial way. If you love the arts or sci-fi movies, this would be the bead for you. Fiber, resin, stone and wood beads make for perfectly matched designs once they're combined with these.
Zen. If you're looking to add a little eastern or Asian flavor to your jewelry, this is the bead for you. There are swirls in silver Zen beads that look almost exactly like the patterns you would find in a Zen sand garden, hence their name. If this sounds appealing to you, you probably have a calm and collective personality.
Squiggle. This is for someone with a fun and bubbly personality, who doesn't mind being the center of attention. This squiggle bead gives off an illustrious vibe, with the modern and cartoon-featured design. Given its fun and unique shape, if you're a big fan of this bead, you probably have a big appetite, too. This bead gets its name because it's shaped after squiggly food like spaghetti, licorice, and funnel cakes!
Spirals. Outta sight! These silver beads are far out! Is someone a Mod Squad fan? If so, these would be perfect. If you're looking to bring back the cool classic styles of the 60's, this is the bead for you.
Daggers. If you like these, you'll instantly know without hesitation. Why? The wild child in you will probably claw all over the place at the sight of these beads. These are hollow, large, and made from hammered brass. If you immediately take notice and are drawn to beads like these, you're probably a natural leader or a warrior who thrives on taking risks. I bet you laugh in the face of a challenge, too, huh? Show off your strength and power with one of these.
Rosebuds. Love anything that sparkles? How about playing dress-up? If you're a typical "girly girl" at heart, these beads will definitely have your name written all over them. Automatically right off the bat, they're labeled as feminine and chic because of the fact that they're floral. Also, because they're hand-crafted and are made with oxidized surfaces, these can appeal to the modern woman today without her worrying about being stuck in a fashion time warp. Wood, stone, or shell-like materials make great accessories when paired with these beads.
Old Metals. Like going on adventures like Indiana Jones? This is the bead for you. Most of the time, these beads look like they've literally just been picked from an archaeological dig site. These can easily be paired with antique jewelry peices or any other mechanical instruments. These beads are proof that classics truly NEVER go out of style, no matter how old they may look!
