Pearl/bead cages are just the coolest way to make really nice looking jewelry almost instantly. You can use whatever size or shape beads you have available as long as they fit inside allowing you to close the cage. So make one up, put on chain & place in a gift box for an instant gift for that special someone even if that’s you.
If you need an Italian sterling silver or gold-plating on sterling silver 18" snake or box chain, they can be found in some of our other listings. Shell pearl beads, Akoya Saltwater, Freshwater pearls &/or individually wrapped oysters - and silver-plated chains are available in other listings.
HOW TO USE: just open the cage & insert bead(s), or if design allows, a variety of smaller grouped pearls/gems/beads, close the cage up & add to your favorite chain or buy one from MERZIEs. Most of these cage pendants have a hinge at the bottom allowing you to carefully open, insert bead(s), & close up tight to feed chain through. We have successfully been able to use a 2+mm wide chain through all the bails of our cage pendants. Above we have put the size bead range that will work though sometimes we use very small beads that are an odd shape – even small faceted gemstones.
There are plenty of FREE on-line measurement converters should you require. This picture is ENLARGED to show detail.
