This antique sterling silver domed bead cap is cast in an open pattern of curlicue flourishes. 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.
