Sometimes you want to string lampwork glass beads or other large-hole beads right next to beads with smaller holes... but the larger-hole beads "wobble" or hang funny on the small cord or wire. BeadAligners and Bead Cappers premiered in 2008 as part of TierraCast's "Solutions for Large Hole Beads" product line. Buy them here at Rings & Things with the option of wholesale quantity discounts.
BeadAligners are spacer beads with an inner tube that's invisible once strung. The tube helps align large hole beads and prevents them from wobbling when strung on standard stringing materials. Made in the USA by TierraCast, these innovative jewelry findings have a core of lead-free Britannia pewter that's finished with your choice of several metal platings including antiqued silver, antiqued gold, antiqued brass, and antiqued copper.
Bead Cappers by TierraCast make it a cinch to turn large hole beads into pendants and charm drops. These innovative jewelry findings glue right into the holes of artisan-made lampwork beads made on a 3/32" mandrel, and any other beads with a 2.5-2.7mm hole.
