Love these vintage bicone beads, by appearance they seem wrapped up in layers of copper. They are molded, so it's not actually the case... still though, I love the wrapped look.
These gorgeous copper beads will add a metal flash to any design. They are nice and light weight, copper plated plastic beads. They have a gorgeous red copper glow.
A nice quality vintage bead, plated in actual copper. Due to their age, there may the occasional scratch or age mark. Nothing out of line with the age. And on this particular style I haven't noticed any.

A story about copper. My family has a cabin in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. 100 years ago, this area of Michigan was home to the world's largest copper mines. It's a rich history and the people there are quite proud of it. You can find copper jewelry and knickknacks in every gift shop. Affordable and lovely, I always bought a piece of copper jewelry as a souvenir. While in high school, talking to a friend, I said, "some people like silver, some people like gold, but I like copper." Though I now giggle at my 15-year-old self too, I had no idea why a teacher's aide who overheard me started laughing. But, it's still true. I still love copper and think this red metal makes a lovely addition to all kinds of jewelry, either in combination with other metals or on its own.
