TierraCast® Pewter Beads and Jewelry Making Components

(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, is proud to announce the addition of American-made TierraCast® beads, bead caps, cones, clasps, drops, links and other components in pewter.

The TierraCast® product line of pewter charms and beads are cast from molds designed and created by master craftsmen, each trained in the skills of fine jewelers. These finely crafted components are cast with attention to detail and high levels of quality control.

TierraCast pewter is a blend of tin, antimony and copper called ''Britannia.'' This alloy is far below the limits set by the state of California for lead content, including the standards for pewter which may come in contact with food. TierraCast's components are electroplated with fine silver, 22 karat gold, rhodium or copper. Every piece is created at the company's facility in California, and has been since 1978.

TierraCast beads, bead caps, cones, clasps, drops, links and other jewelry making components are quality checked through a 15-point process, ensuring that only the highest quality castings leave their manufacturing facility. Pieces that fail to meet TierraCast standards are scrapped by the company and recycled for their metal content.
