Topics: Alternatives to Gold and Silver

With the price of gold and silver being so high, I'm thinking of using alternative metals, such as pewter or copper. How do other metals compare when used in jewelry?

Pewter and copper are great product lines to work with, not only because they look good but also because there are so many items to choose from, all of which are very in fashion! And thankfully there are findings to match all of these great beading lines, making it an easy way to match all of your components.

Gold-filled, ''vermeil'', gold-plated, silver-plated and brass beads offer an affordable alternative to sterling silver and high-karat gold.
