Take a favorite bead, antique it to a gorgeous silver patina, and what you have is a must-have bead for many projects. Meet Antique Silver Big Shadows, part of the family of hex beads we call Shadows. Measuring a generous 4.5mm with a 2.5mm hole that slides easily on our 2mm leather cord, you will find so many uses for this bead. The facets on this bead are crisp and really make the bead shine. Made in India of silver-plate over 100% brass. To achieve the antique finish, we oxidize the beads in-house* to a glorious finish. Hide cord knots with them, use in laddering like we did in our Says Hoo project, or try in Tahoe as this bead was just made for leather!
Sold in packages of 6 beads
*Each bead is antiqued by us using Silver Black, a chemical solution. We then wash and rinse each bead to remove any residue. This process takes quite a bit of time and that’s why we charge more for the antiqued beads we patina in house.
