One of the main attractions to vintaj is the malleable quality it has, making it perfect if you want to polish it to a high sheen, stamp it, buffer it, hammer it, bend it, twist it or even texturize it.
At the Bead Shop we offer an assortment of tools for making and shaping your vintaj piece, including:
Not only is vintaj flexible to work with, it is also offers a great context to add other styles and shapes of beads to. Swarovski Faceted Round beads are a popular choice as are Swarovski Bicone beads; both of which bring about a balance by adding instant sparkle. Vintaj also goes well with the full range of antique brass findings we have available at the Bead Shop.
Practical tips and advice are available in our vintaj books we have on sale at The Bead Shop where you will find inspiration and step-by-step guides on how to design your vintaj jewellery.
One of the beauties of vintaj is the minimal amount of maintenance it needs. However, if you need to, it is possible to clean vintaj with soap and water.
The vintaj selection at The Bead Shop is not plated metal, our pieces are made from 100% brass. They have not been chemically treated and do not contain nickel or lead.
