11 15mm Grooved Round Beads Vintage Red Copper Plated Plastic Ball Beads Large Loose Beads
These vintage copper beads will add a metal flash to any design. They are nice and light weight, copper plated plastic beads. They have a gorgeous red copper glow.
Lovely stripey pattern on these, that reminds me of kind of a zebra print. Quite lovely.
A nice quality vintage bead, plated in actual copper. Due to their age, there are small spots on nearly every bead. If you are not looking for the spots, you will not really notice them. If you are looking for them, there they are! Even with the spots, they are lovely and usable beads. Please see pictures to note the spots, or as I like to call them, beauty marks.

A story about copper. My family has a cabin in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. 100 years ago, this area of Michigan was home to the world’s largest copper mines. It’s a rich history and the people there are quite proud of it. You can find copper jewelry and knickknacks in every gift shop. Affordable and lovely, I always bought a piece of copper jewelry as a souvenir. While in high school, talking to a friend, I said, “some people like silver, some people like gold, but I like copper.” Though I now giggle at my 15-year-old self too, I had no idea why a teacher’s aide who overheard me started laughing. But, it’s still true. I still love copper and think this red metal makes a lovely addition to all kinds of jewelry, either in combination with other metals or on its own.
