BLACK GOLD PLATED COPPER BEAD FACETED NUGGET, BRUSHED 4MM (#437250)
Gunmetal Plated Faceted Nuggets (Chan Luu Style), Beads Of Cambay Discount Coupon Code - DIY Product Review
These faceted (gunmetal) nuggets measure approximately 4mm (height/ hole to hole) by 4mm (width), with a hole size of approximately 2mm. They have rounded corners and a brushed textured (short deboss strokes) finishing, however, the short deboss strokes are fainter compared to item #422543 and gives them a finish which seems smooth rather than brushed. These nuggets which are like a hybrid of item #418311 and item #422543, don't reflect light.

Approximately 47 pieces of nuggets are strung on each string (8 inches) and retails for USD18.00. Beads Of Cambay's product image accurately represents the item we received.

CONCLUSIONS
Gunmetal Plated Faceted Nuggets (Chan Luu Style), Beads Of Cambay Discount Coupon Code - DIY Product Review
These faceted nuggets are copper based beads with gunmetal plating, the copper center of the nuggets give them a nice weight, which I feel, is good for jewellery making as it makes jewellery fall nicely when worn.

Like many plated materials, polishing is not recommended. Polishing will strip the plating and expose the core material. To prevent the nuggets from tarnishing, I keep mine in zip-lock bags with anti-tarnish tabs. We do the same with our bracelets that use these nuggets. But I do feel that these nuggets tarnish more compared to Beads Of Cambay's buttons if not properly stored.

Below are a couple of images of our DIY Chan Luu style Men's leather wrap bracelets created using these gunmetal/ black gold plated faceted nuggets.
