Gold Plated Silver Glue-In Thin Bead Inserts that fit resin and glass large hole European beads to make them look perfect on any Biagi, Chamilia or Pandora bracelet. A little cover sanding away a pouring spout. They measure appx 6mm across in total, 5mm hole and 0.5mm each lip.
Glue-In Thin Bead Inserts Compatability
Perfect for use with all of our charm bead moulds (click here) such as the medium charm bead mould, the faceted charm bead mould and the large charm bead mould. 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) 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.

Gold Plated 925 Sterling Silver
The silver in these beads is 925 sterling EcoSilver, a recycled silver. They are plated with 0.02 microns of 14ct gold and cannot be called vermeil in the USA as the plating is not the required thickness. In the UK you can refer to them as gold vermeil but not in the product title; you must make it clear that they are gold plated silver. They are stamped 925 but are not hallmarked. Please see our blog on Types of Solid Silver and Types of Gold which explains the care instructions for the silver and the metal content.
How to Use Charm Bead Inserts
You can read our full blog here on making a lock of hair and rose petal charm bead with all the links for the products you’ll need. These inserts work exactly the same as the wide glue-in heart inserts shown in the video, but are a little narrower. Please remember that these inserts may not cover the full sanding area and you may need to dome the bead with a little resin before setting the insert. Here’s the YouTube tutorial video
