Item details

I was very fortunate on my most recent buying trip to stumble upon a large amount of "metalized" lucite beads. Becoming increasingly rare, these vintage beads are "metalized" meaning, they are plated with precious metals rather than having a thin painted coating. They start with a molded lucite core, plate them with solid copper and then plate them again with precious metals. They are then finished with a black antiquing and then tumbled to remove the excess. This complicated process leaves us with a high quality eye catching bead that is heavier than a typical lucite bead. Because they are metalized, these beads will tarnish over time and exposure to air. They polish up beautifully like any precious metal would. I recommend "Sunshine Polishing Clothes" to do a quick cleaning. They are highly affordable and will polish all your metals without scratching the surfaces.

This listing is for these gorgeous metalized ornate patterned silver plated metalized lentil beads. These double sided beads have a ridged edging and a nice big hole for stringing on heavier materials. They measure 18mm x 8mm thick with a hole size of 3mm. You get 6.
