Tips for making beautiful designs with CCB Beads

Discover the trend - It looks like metal and weighs like plastic.

29/04/2022

Dear Designers In this guide, we will cover unique components for jewelry making that we love to use CCB Beads.

I will explore how to use them and especially advise some exciting ideas for incorporating these unique beads in various jewelry.

 

CCB beads - are lightweight, shiny, and have a well-finished metallic look.

 

 

CCB beads are made of plastic, but unlike other plastic materials,  they are resistant to the electroforming process and can be plated with a layer of precious metal.

What gives them a metallic look is an advantage because they can be plated with GITA's special metal finishes.

Choose from 17 different metal plating finishes: gold, silver, nickel, black, rose gold, antique plating, etc.

The amorphic shapes and silk texture gives a perfect metallic impression with low weight.

What makes them popular among many fashion jewelry designers.

 

CCB Beads automatically add depth and three-dimensionality to your piece of jewelry.

It can be threaded on silicone wire just like other beads.

Whether beads are your jewelry's central theme or just a component, CCB beads are an excellent choice for jewelry making.

Whether the beads are used as the main material in your jewelry or used as an addition. Adding them to your jewelry is easy and gives a special style that cannot be ignored.

 

Get started with Bedding the beading by watching GITA's free tutorials and inspirations library.

 

 

In the picture above we created a very simple bracelet with beads.

We used a hard wound metal base, and on it, we threaded bicone beads, metal charms, and CCB Beads in yellow gold matte plating finish.

 

Combine different materials and create earringsnecklacesbraceletschokers, or any other accessories and decorate them with CCB Beads. 

It looks gorgeous when you mix different textures, plating colors, and materials together.

 

 

 

The Pictured above are examples of using the CCB Beads to make earrings; we threaded several components on the eye pin and attached them to the leverback earring hook.

 

Note that we chose several different styles of CCB beads in a variety of plating finishes like shiny black, nickel, and matte gold.

 

We used a simple jump ring connection to charms, tassels, or stone settings with crystals

The result is remarkable.

 

 

 

It is very easy to work with them, so dont waist your time and hurry up to create your jewelry bases with GITA and CCB Beads.

 

To inspire you to create your jewelry collections with these new plastic beads.

 

 

 

 

In the picture above, we threaded the CCB Beads beads on a metal necklace base made of hard metal wire;

between the beads, we combined loops and sea-themed charms like seashells and shells and navette stone settings with light blue crystals.

 

At GITA, we offer different shapes of CCB Beads. You can find them all here and choose them in your favorite plating.

 

And have fun creating:)
