A sterling silver bead can make for decoration or spacing in a necklace or bracelet. Silver beads come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. Some sterling silver jewelry beads are large, flat ovals with patterned surfaces. Others are shaped like stars, beaded squares, berries and tubes. Patterned beads and shaped beads can accent a necklace or be stranded together in a lovely and simple design. You could choose a single sterling silver bead and put it on a silver chain for a simple and elegant pendant look.
