Beads from old necklaces

Can I make toys using beads from my old necklaces? Are fashion jewellery beads safe for birds in terms of what they are made out of? (ie, plastic and coloured)

If there is paint that can be chewed off then no but if it is coloured plastic then as long as they can't eat it, it should be fine. Don't use anything so thin and/or brittle they can snap it because it will become a real health hazzard.

Tiny beads for larger birds are also a no go
