This antique sterling silver bead cap is domed in the shape of a flower, with alternating thin and wide petals and an open pattern. The open areas allow more of the bead’s surface to show through. Bead caps are placed over your beads to draw attention by creating a unique style for your beaded jewelry designs. It can help individualize your designs when using plain beads, covering large bead holes, preventing headpin slippage, or hiding damaged or imperfect holes of some beads. When used in conjunction with a headpin, it adds a decorative, professional finish to your jewelry designs.
There are no rules to matching a bead cap. Experiment with a variety of styles to achieve the look you desire for your design. The size of the bead cap depends on how much of the bead you want to cover.
This bead cap has an outside diameter of 13mm, a hole diameter of 1mm, and weighs 0.96 gram.
