Glue-In Bead Inserts that fit resin, polymer clay and glass donut beads to make them look perfect on any Biagi, Chamilia or Pandora bracelet. Nice and wide to cover sanding away a pouring spout. They have a 5mm hole and various size lips.

Glue-In Bead Inserts Compatibility

Perfect for use with all of our charm bead moulds (click here) such as the medium bead mould, the faceted bead mould and the large bead mould etc. For advice on making keepsake and memorial jewellery see our blogs here.

These inserts or grommets are sold by the pair so for one charm you would just need to purchase one pair. They are much wider than other inserts on the market so they’re ideal for covering up the sanding area on resin charm beads. I recommend Araldite jewellery epoxy glue (click here) or E6000 which you can mix on a piece of label backing paper with a toothpick and apply to the inside of the insert. Gently place it on top of the charm bead and leave to cure, then repeat on the other side.

    These charm bead inserts are fantastic! I had tried multiple other brands and found them to always be either too small, or have an undesirable lip on them. These are just perfect! They are smooth, cover the area nicely, and look beautiful. I’m so thankful to have found Keepsaker supplies! I will not order my charm bead inserts anywhere else!

    I absolutely love these cores, they are so easy to put in and the tiny heart just finishes the bead of perfectly. I couldn’t recommend these cores higher

    Work just as expected very east to do and look lovely. The little heart just makes it.

  11. sarahhewes1 (verified owner)

    So easy to insert and lovely quality, thank you

  12. sharon.legg (verified owner)

    These are absolutely gorgeous! I have looked so hard for a lovely core that fits wide enough around the resin bead, not only does it have a great quality to it, it has a wide enough rim to help conceal the top of the bead when out of the mould. The cute little heart is just an added beautiful touch. I will of course share my lucky find with all my resin art memorial friends to purchase! Have only just found this site, will be ordering much more!… thank you for the added ‘how to use’ clips! So very useful!

  13. hollyjwinters (verified owner)

    I love using these bead cores as they’re so easy to glue inside the charm beads.
    They also feature a tiny heart which makes them extra special!

    Very cute design and good quality. Finish my beads off nicely. Thank you!

  15. Julia Wallis (verified owner)

    I waited for these to come back into stock, well worth the wait!
    So much nicer than other glue in cores I’ve used, the heart adds an extra special touch
