This antique sterling silver bead has been cast as a short hinged tube with one row of dots around the perimeter. This spacer bead is hinged to allow you to separate & “capture” sections of beads in Pandora style bracelets & necklaces. Short tube beads are a staple in contemporary designs. They are often used by jewelers, jewelry designers and artists to accent the overall look and appearance of their designs. The large holes can accommodate many stringing materials, offering myriad design options. Tube beads are also great as a filler, or to add accents to your designs, or to draw attention or add an interesting color contrast within your designs.
