What Are Karol Silicone Focal Beads?

Our Karol Silicone Focal Beads are small silicone beads that are designed to add visual interest and texture to floral designs. They come in a wide variety of colors including transparent, translucent, opaque, and metallic finishes. The beads have a high shine finish that reflects light beautifully.

The beads are approximately 2-6mm in diameter. They come packaged sorted by size and color. Karol offers convenient color assortments for ease of selecting coordinating hues and tones. The focal beads can be purchased in bulk wholesale quantities for professional florists and designers. Smaller packages are available for crafters and hobbyists.

Benefits and Uses

Our Karol Silicone Focal Beads offer numerous benefits for designers:

  • Provide color and interest - The beads come in vibrant solids and subtle pastels to complement floral materials. Metallic beads add shine and dimension.
  • Long-lasting - Made from flexible silicone, the beads are durable and withstand wear. Their color won't fade over time.
  • Hold shape - The focal beads maintain a consistent round shape and won't flatten out like some natural materials.
  • Work with fresh or faux flowers - The beads can be incorporated into both live floral designs as well as silk and other faux arrangements.
  • Reusable - As a cost-effective option, the beads can be reused in multiple designs over time.
  • Easy to apply - Simple to mix into arrangements using floral tape, wire, floral glue, or pinning.

Floral designers often use Karol focal beads to add spots of color and interest within floral designs. The beads work well mixed in with fresh flower buds and petals. Designers also frequently apply the beads to wire stems to create colorful stems or accents.

Beyond florals, the beads also add nice detail and color to home décor projects like wreaths, candle arrangements, vases, terrariums, and more. The transparent and translucent beads look especially nice arranged in glass containers with lights or candles beneath.

Popular Sizes and Colors

Karol offers their silicone focal beads in a diverse range of sizes and colors to suit any design need. Some of the most popular options include:

  • 2mm beads - Available in colors like transparent, emerald, jet, ruby, and more. The tiny 2mm size works well sprinkled within dense floral designs.
  • 4mm beads - Offered in opaque, translucent, metallic and color options. The 4mm size is versatile for most arrangements.
  • 6mm beads - Provide a substantial focal point. Great for single stems or sparse arrangements.
  • Mixes - Many crafters and hobbyists appreciate the convenience of multi-color variety packs.
  • Metallics - For a glamorous touch, metallic finishes like blue violet luster, copper luster, and rainbow luster add eye-catching shine.
  • Neons - Vibrant neon hues like neon pink, green, orange, and yellow give bold splashes of color.

Caring for Karol Beads

Karol Silicone Focal Beads are very durable and long-lasting with proper care. Here are some tips for maintaining the beads:

  • Store carefully - Keep unused beads in original packaging or sealed containers. Avoid exposure to dirt, dust and moisture.
  • Clean gently - Wipe soil or debris from beads with a soft dry cloth. Avoid rough scrubbing.
  • Avoid high heat - When using beads in candle arrangements and other high heat situations, keep beads at least 12 inches from the flame.
  • Watchwire ends - Wire ends can potentially tear the beads if not carefully tucked in and padded.
  • Check for damage - Inspect beads periodically for any tearing, cracks or cuts. Remove any damaged beads from rotation.
