Frequently Asked Questions About This Website
1. What Do We Call The Different Designs?
Crown. In our work, a Crown is flat across the bottom and rises to a regular set of points on top. Our style of Crown is also called a Coronet.
Circlet. Our Circlets are flat on top and on bottom, with nothing protruding above or below the borders.
Diadem. While "Diadem" technically means any ornamental headpiece, our Diadems start at the point in the front and gently arch over the sides of the wearer's head.
2. What Metals Do We Use?
German Silver. Although it is silver in color, German Silver contains no true silver. It is a corrosion-resistant, malleable alloy of copper that resembles sterling silver. It is also called Nickel Silver or White Brass. We use nickel-plated beads in our German Silver work for their wear-resistance, durability, and good color match.
OK Gold. Like German Silver, OK Gold is an alloy of copper. It is similar in appearance to 14Kt gold, but contains no real gold. We use durable gold-plated beads that are a good color match to OK Gold, and allow us to offer the OK Gold at the same price as German Silver.
Copper. A soft, reddish-orange metal. Although they are not shown widely on our website, most items we make in German Silver and OK Gold can be made in Copper. Copper-plated brass beads allow us to offer any of our beaded items in Copper too. Warning: Copper tarnishes very fast compared to any of our other metals.
3. What About The Beads We Use In Our Work?
Gem Beads. We offer semi-precious gemstone beads in 8 millimeter and 6 millimeter size. Refer to the first column at left for available choices for Gem Beads.
Czech Beads. Czech is short for Czechoslavakian Crystal, which is a high grade of colored glass crystal, usually of reliably consistent color, size and shape. We use 8 millimeter and 6 millimeter sizes in our work.
Metal Beads. All our metal beads are 6 millimeter, which make a beautiful contrasting background for the Gem and Czech beads.
