The term "slider bead" actually was derived in the Victorian Era, when the ladies would put various designs onto a bracelet, similar to the European style bracelets you see today. It would a charm bracelet in essence to the person wearing.
Over the years, things have changed, here at www.Mobile-boutique.com we pride ourselves on offering great looking beading components for our customers. Some are adorned with rhinestones, while some have their very own look and texture, others are covered brightly colored enamel. The beads are packaged into "packs" to keep the costs down for everyone. We work hard to keep costs as low as possible for our customers.
As precious metal prices rise, the cost to make something from a precious metal is well, just that costly. And many jewelry designers simply cannot afford to use these types of materials in their designs. Our beads are all base metal beads, mostly zinc and rhodium plated. We offer a large selection of color options and all are superior quality. The bead's finish is outstanding and will not wear off or turn you green.
Each of the design carries something unique about them. These designs can be used in a variety of fashions, such as necklaces, earrings, candle decorations, on horse gear and so much more. So, not a jewelry designer? Well, that's okay, they can be used in many craft projects!
So take some time to look around. Not only do we carry the 2 hole slider beads, but we also offer many other items such as fold over magnetic clasps, watch faces for beading, charms, and a variety of other clasp designs.
