Modern & Simple: Sterling Silver Tube Beads

Sterling silver tube beads are the perfect spacers for larger size beads. They provide a more modern look and will allow the gorgeous beads that you pick to stand out in your jewelry.

Sterling silver tube beads are available in many lengths and thicknesses. They can be straight, curvy or wavy

In this example, I used a sterling silver heishi bead on each side of the glass beads for added detail.

This piece was strung on medium weight Flex Rite beading wire and finished with a simple lobster claw clasp.
