This sterling silver heart bead features an off-center side-drilled hole, allowing the bead to hang at an angle. Use it in multiples for an especially effective look or use an individual bead for variation with other strung elements in bracelet, necklace or earring designs. The bright finish of the bead makes a striking contrast when partnered with gemstone beads, small round bright and matte-finished beads or with tube beads.
• 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.
