Pewter is a malleable metal, which means that it is able to bend easily and can be shaped as desired but is strong enough to resist breakage. Pewter is an alloy, mostly consisting of tin with traces of copper and even silver sometimes present. Until recent years when safety concerns about lead in jewelry became an industry issue, lead was also often present in the creation of pewter. Today, almost all pewter beads are lead safe and nickel free.
Pewter has been used for ages. The earliest work of pewter was found in an Egyptian tomb dating back to about 1450 B.C. It is believed that it was widely used by Egyptian and Roman civilizations. Pewter was also used throughout Europe during the Middle Ages. Today, it is a popular metal found not only in jewelry making components, but also in statues and figurines as well as coins and collectibles.
