Unlike traditional glass seed beads, metal seed beads are made of pure metal and manufactured in the USA. Metal seed beads are uniform in shape, and are available in an array of sizes and finishes from gunmetal to zinc to copper, plus more! Made from brass and plated with a variety of finishes, these metal seed beads are a great way to add metallic accent to your designs. Metal seed beads are heavier than glass seed beads so it is recommended to use a strong beading thread to keep your project intact. Browse GoodyBeads.com for all your beading needs today!
