Plastic Beads FAQs

How To Tell If Beads Are Glass Or Plastic?

To determine if beads are glass or plastic, consider their weight and temperature. Glass beads are typically heavier than plastic beads of the same size. Tap the beads lightly: glass beads produce a clear, ringing sound, while plastic beads sound duller. Additionally, inspect the surface closely - glass beads may have imperfections or bubbles, whereas plastic beads often have a more uniform appearance.

What To Make With Plastic Beads?

You can make a variety of jewellery and craft items with plastic beads, including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and keychains. Create colourful beaded jewellery for everyday wear or special occasions. Use them to embellish hair accessories, decorate clothing or bags, or even make home decor items like curtain tiebacks or coasters. Plastic beads offer endless possibilities for fun and creative projects!

What Is The Difference Between Plastic And Acrylic Beads?

Plastic beads are generally made from various types of polymers, offering affordability and versatility. Acrylic beads specifically refer to beads made from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), known for its lightweight, durable and glossy appearance. Acrylic beads often mimic the look of glass but are lighter and less fragile. Both types are popular in jewellery making for their wide range of colours and shapes.

Are Plastic Beads Durable?

Plastic craft beads are generally durable and resistant to breakage under normal wear conditions. They are lightweight and less prone to shattering compared to glass beads, making them suitable for everyday jewellery. However, extreme heat or pressure can deform or damage plastic beads. Choosing high-quality plastic beads ensures better durability and longevity for your crafted jewellery pieces.
