Silicone-Lined Bead Stoppers (Sliders or SmartBeads) easily hold beads in place. Each bead contains a silicone rubber gasket. The hole in this inner rubber lining is small, but expands to hold the bead securely in place on a variety of wire and cord. Change your design daily by simply sliding the beads into a new position! The sterling silver and 14kt gold-filled styles have a 0.5mm hole, perfect for using as French hook ear wire keepers, and stoppers for Ear Thread (Threader Earring) designs.
Bead Bumpers are tiny silicone spacers that work great to cushion delicate beads from getting scratched or marred, and to help make "floating pearl" or illusion necklaces. These innovative jewelry making supplies are perfect for holding beads in place, and can masquerade as knots between pearls.

Need a size in between these? Here's a trick: Use a French wire keeper, and cover it with a crimp cover. See how in our blog. (don't worry -- there's no blinkin ads in our blog.)
