New Bead Caps

Posted by Rod Connors on 10/14/2016 to News

Bead Caps are great for adding extra style and a special finishing touch to your next piece of beaded jewelry. Bead Caps are designed to go on one side or both sides of a bead. You can stack different bead caps together to create an even more unique piece of jewelry. Here is some information on Bead Cap Sizing Information and jewelry design help. The first number on the bead cap will be how deep or tall a bead cap is. The second number on the bead cap will be the diameter or how wide the bead cap is. When we refer to diameter of bead caps we refer to the outside diameter. We are often asked what size bead cap to use for a certain size bead. The answer depends on the look you want the bead cap to create. If you have a 12mm bead and you put a bead cap on each end that is 12mm in diameter, those bead caps will stick out as far as the bead does. The bead caps will end up covering much of the bead and the bead caps will be the focus instead of the bead. Sometimes this is the desirable way to present certain bead caps but sometimes it is not. If you want this bead to be the focus you would use a bead cap with a smaller diameter. You could use a 10mm, 8mm, or even a 6mm bead cap in this case. Now on the other hand if you are just using one bead cap and you want to create a wrap around type of effect, you would use a larger bead cap. A 14mm or 16mm bead cap would be a great bead cap to use for this purpose.

2.5x1.5mm Glass Crystal Mini Rondelles - We Have Them!

Posted by Rod Connors on 7/23/2015 to News

We are very happy to bring you the smallest glass crystal rondelle beads available in the beading world!  These faceted glass crystal mini rondelles are approximately 2.5mm tall and 1.5mm wide.  Kim was working on a jewelry pattern featured in Beadwork and advised me there was a little crystal rondelle bead mentioned in one of the articles and we did not have it.  She told me there was a beautiful bracelet called Paragon Cuff by Michelle Heim which referenced 2.5x1.5mm crystal rondelles.  I did some searching online and could not locate these crystals anywhere.  I contacted several of the distributors we work with and none of them had them.  I finally got lucky and was able to get one of the factories we work with to make them for us.  The 2.5x1.5mm glass crystal mini rondelles just came in and they look beautiful.  We have 15 colors right now and we hope you love them.  The 2.5x1.5mm glass crystal rondelles may also be seen in some patterns as 1.5x2mm but the actual size is closer to 1.5x2.5mm.  They come on strands that are approximately 16 inches long with approximately 200 mini rondelles per strand.
