Spangles are also known as Paillettes (French term) are hard metal disk with a hole in the center, similar to a sequin but superior in quality.

Spangles are made by twisting a metal wire around a metal rod, forming metal rings that are cut off and hammered flat leaving a fine seam along one side of the spangle and a hole in the center of the spangle through which you sew down the spangle with one or more stitches or a french knot or bead to hold the spangle in place.

The metal of spangles is copper based with a gold, silver or copper plating and will tarnish over time.

The standard lurex thread comes in dark gold  No. 371, silver No. 380 and copper No. 371. Lurex thread is very similar to passing thread but with a synthetic thread wrapped around a fibre core instead of a metal thread.

The great thing about the lurex thread is that it does not tarnish but has the appearance of a real metal thread.
