These checks have been indented and given an oxidized finish to make them appear old. Using only one of these beads in your designs is sure to create a dramatic design. These high quality beads are metal-plated plastic, making them incredibly lightweight so don't be afraid to string a bunch of them together. Thanks to their light weight and low cost, Metallite beads are great for craft projects and children's jewelry designing.
