This sterling silver bead offers a contrast of bright and matte-finished areas including a bright center strip. It is especially effective in multiples or alternated with smaller beads. Round beads are a staple of strung designs; they are ideal simply strung together, used individually as separators or accents, or to complement other elements in drop or dangle earrings, bracelets or necklaces.
• Bead sizes and hole sizes are approximate and may vary slightly from bead to bead.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
