Materials | Plastic

~ Lemon & Rose Necklace ~
I don't usually incorporate plastic beads or findings into my designs because they most often look exactly as they are: Cheap. That being said, frosted Lucite goes beautifully with my elegantly styled jewelry. Lucite is is made out of resin, which makes it technically a plastic. Hmmm...
~ Flower Earrings in Team Colors ~
My source for the Lucite beads I use says this about Lucite:

 "Technically known as thermoplastic acrylic resin originally developed in the '30s, Lucite is a wonderfully lightweight yet durable material with timeless appeal."

So far I have only used the flower beads shapes, but Lucite comes in a wide variety of styles.
