New Metal Jewelry Components

For regular beadshop shoppers, make sure you bookmark the Just In page of the web store so that you can stop by occasionally and get the scoop on all the new beads, components, and beading supplies that recently arrived. There are usually half a dozen or more pages worth of new materials to explore. Most recently, there are some interesting metal-based components available.
Climbing Wisteria

Climbing Wisteria - Antique Brass Pendants are new and elegant. They measure 18 x 2mm and are available in four different metal plating: antique brass, antiqued copper, antiqued silver, and matte gold. The base is brass, and these are made in Israel by JBB. Not only are these pendants hypoallergenic, they are also lead-free. Keep them simple and add them to a chain, or use them to adorn a wrap bracelet. 

Coppered Hematite
Coppered Hematite Strands are very unusual. Copper pyrite coating is plated over these 4mm hematite rondelles. These are sold per strand, and each strand measures 15-½ inches with approximately 168-170 beads.

Cornerstone Clasps
Cornerstone Clasps are available in three finishes: copper, brass, and silver plate over base metal. These clasps are imported from Greece and measure 28mm x 25mm with an opening of 20mm x 2.5mm with three strong magnets keep it securely fastened. While those jewelry designers who love to create large loom beaded pieces will find these textured clasps useful, they can also be used by bead stringers who want to make multiple strand jewelry pieces.
