Sliders Collection

Bead Gallery by Halcraft Collection began creating Sliders starting in 2009, and we have assembled an assortment of sliders that ranges from Victorian Classics to Modern Metal, with everything in between.

These were first created to fulfill our wish for jewelry designers to be able to make amazing cuff-style bracelets when it was so difficult to do so with a one-side-fits-all wooden or metal cuff base. The curvature of the material would make it very difficult for people to decorate on, and even if one could encrust the blank cuff with adhesives and beads, the constant bending and un-bending of the cuff to put the bracelet on caused the adhesive to crack and the beads to pop off.

Sliders

Our sliders all have at least 4-holes or 4-loops on the underside of the design, allowing one to use two strands of stretch cord to string them, so when one takes multiples of similar size sliders and string them with parallel stretch cords, a stretchy (easy to take on and off, one size fits all) cuff-style bracelet comes together very easily.  Memory wire can also be used to make more solid cuff bracelets that are easy to put on and take off.  They also can be used with layers of stringing cord or tiger tail to create multi-layered necklaces or statement pieces by doubling up the strings through the loops or holed do create larger centerpieces and pendants.

Sliders

Halcraft Collection has an entire line of classic vintage style sliders that can be used to make incredible statement necklaces, or just be strung with two strands of stretch cord to make vintage style cuff bracelets. We have a wide selection of stone sliders, many different styles of glass sliders and many, metal sliders with rhinestone décor.  Paired with your favorite spacer beads or accent pieces, these sliders help to create fantastical jewelry designs that will shimmer and shine to your hearts content!
