This antique sterling silver bead cap is cast as double sided, meant to be strung in between beads as much as a separator as a cap. Bead caps are placed over (or in this case, in between) 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 8mm, a hole diameter of 2.8mm, and weighs 1.24 grams.
