Custom Mardi Gras Beads & More!

Custom Specialties are OUR Specialty!

These days, countless suppliers of promotional or so-called "ad specialty" products offer to "customize" everything from computer mouse pads and baseball caps to coffee mugs and golf bags. But what if you’re looking to create something truly unique and special? Not a mere tchotchke but something festive and commemorative? Something collectible?

Then you’ve definitely found the right place! At Beads by the Dozen, our design and manufacturing capabilities extend well beyond the usual imprinting services offered by suppliers of promotional products. Especially when it comes to creating custom-molded figures—which can adorn necklaces, bracelets and key chains, as well as be incorporated into paperweights, picture frames and snow globes—we set the standard.

Other custom specialties we produce range from the practical (tote bags, umbrellas and cups) to the whimsical (plush and vinyl toys) and the elegant (cast medals and lustrous cloisonné stones). Clients can provide their own artwork or tap our experienced in-house design team.

We invite you to browse our sample galleries. You may be surprised at where the expertise we initially developed customizing specialty items for a creative, demanding and highly competitive group of constituents—Mardi Gras kr ewes—has led us.

Custom Bead Necklaces

Thanks to improvements in design and production processes, which have made it possible to transform ever more imaginative flights of fancy into reality, certain beads featuring insignias, themes and mascots have become highly collectible. A well-executed design can thus create a lasting identification between a business or organization and its constituents. And as many event and party planners have come to recognize, custom necklaces—festive in appearance and highly noticeable when worn—serve to memorialize special occasions while also promoting fun and conviviality.

Whether you provide your own artwork or tap our in-house design capability, our experienced team is ready to help you explore a full range of options including plastic and polystone medallions and figurines, screen-printed disk medallions and light-up Blinky Beads™.

Cloisonné Designs

Dazzling to the eye, cloisonnés (pronounced CLOY-zen-nays), also known as "Korean coins," is french for “cloison” or “cell.” A technique in which metal wires are bent to form a design; enamel is then inlaid into the resulting “cloisons.”

Cloisonné art pieces feature decorative, sharply defined enamel work and are highly collectible.

Ideal for mementos, awards and favors, they can be used as pendants—strung on a chain or ribbon, to be worn around the neck—or incorporated into medals, key chains, bottle openers, letter openers and pin ribbons.

There are many exciting options for custom cloisonné designs. Contact our creative team to learn more about the process of having your own ideas transformed into a beautiful cloisonné design.

Cups & Drinkware

Custom cups and drinkware make for great promotional items and premiums as people tend to save and re-use them over and over again – increasing brand awareness and visibility.

Custom drinkware is also a fabulous give-away item for bars and clubs, wedding receptions, parades or any theme event serving drinks.

Beads by the Dozen can customize just about any kind of drinkware imaginable from plastic cups, insulated "on the run" cups to champagne flutes.

Commemorative Coins, Doubloons & Wooden Nickels

Metallic Doubloons

Rex, the prestigious New Orleans Mardi Gras organization, initiated a new tradition in 1960, when members tossed specially struck aluminum coins to spectators during their annual Fat Tuesday procession. Since then, amusement parks, restaurants, bars—even churches—have taken to minting doubloons, for use as keepsakes or pseudo currency that can be redeemed—for a ride, say, or a free drink.

Cast-Metal Commemorative Coins

Struck to exacting specifications, these keepsake-quality coins, which can be incorporated into key chains, feature raised-relief designs that can include lettering, logos/emblems and portraiture (i.e., busts or faces). Also available as pendants with cast loops, for stringing on chains or ribbons.

Wooden Nickels

An old-fashioned but nonetheless effective communications medium. Think Mardi Gras throws, event admits, promotional offers, etc

Polystone Designs

Polystone is a ceramic-type material that adapts beautifully to designs rendered in three dimensions. Custom-molded polystone figures can adorn necklaces, bracelets and key chains, as well as be incorporated into paperweights, picture frames, snow globes and Christmas ornaments. Because of their heft and lustrous appearance, polystones have a keepsake quality-yet are surprisingly affordable, even when ordered in small quantities.
