Ball & Socket Beads


Ball & Socket Beads are concave on one end and convex on the other. When beads are strung convex to concave, the wire can flex or bend and still maintain the ceramic insulation.

Ball & Socket Beads are available in bulk or in 6″ and 12″ paper sleeves.  For sleeved beads, insert wire through the paper tube of beads and pull string which splits and removes the paper, beads are applied in seconds.
