Unlike most seed beads in the FusionBeads.com collection, these U.S.-manufactured seed beads are made of pure metal instead of glass. These seed beads add the perfect metallic accent to your jewelry creations and are an economical alternative to purchasing metal beads individually for your designs. Our metal seed beads are made from brass, which is then plated with a variety of metal finishes. The hole edges of metal seed beads may be sharp and can cut through beading thread. We recommend using a strong beading thread such as FireLine. As you are weaving, avoid pulling or scraping the thread against the hole edge. The finish can wear off of these beads with repeated wear/use. Check out our Peyote Stitch, Right Angle Weave, Herringbone, Netting, Brick Stitch, Bead Embroidery, Bead Fringe, Kumihimo, Bead Crochet, and More Bead Weaving Techniques for a variety of ways to use seed beads in your designs. Learn all about seed beads in our Seed Bead Q and A.
