Share a Special Message with Alphabet Beads

Rhodium plated pewter alphabet beads are a gorgeous alternative to sterling silver alphabet beads. You will find these beads to be budget friendly without having to sacrifice quality.

Made in the USA, these beads are available in both rhodium (silver color) plated and gold plated finishes and are the perfect combination with 4mm Czech glass fire polished beads which come in a large variety of colors. Our example show bracelets strung on gossamer stretch cord.

I chose to spell "PEACE, LOVE, HOPE" but you can spell anything you like, matching pewter number beads are available as well.

Alphabet Beads on Friendship Bands

Here is a new twist on friendship bracelets. Not only can you spell out any special message using alphabet beads, you can also use fabric with fun patterns to add personality and create these friendship "bands".

You just need some fabric strips cut to size - about 12" x 3/4" and large hole beads. Slide on the beads and tie the bands around your wrist or ankles.
