Bead of the Week

red agateJust perfect for your Halloween creations -- these Red Agate Evil Eye beads are of stone that was formed from layers of silica from volcanic cavities. Agate is named after the Achates River (now known as the Dirillo River) on the island of Sicily, Italy, whose upper waters were an ancient source of this gemstone. Each strand offered here has 16 round faceted beads, with colors ranging from red to amber, as shown. Each bead is approx. 10 mm. with an approx. 2 mm. hole. Each strand is $10, but for a limited time, take 10% off with the code HALLOWEEN at checkout.

Tucson 2 060This week we feature a LOW PRICE DEAL (!!!) on one of our most-beloved bead types, a little handful of the wonderful Peruvian Opals pictured here.

I'm not alone in my love for these deliciously blue stones. I've heard you can't even find them in Peru any more -- they were bought up years ago. And now they are terribly hard to find, and usually quite expensive!

You might use these alone in a special bracelet or paired with soft-brown stones or wood beads in a gorgeous necklace - whatever you can imagine and create! This little set makes them more affordable than ever! Only $10 for ELEVEN of these sweet, fat little beads - each approx. 10 mm wide and 6 mm. thick, with tiny holes as shown (only about 1 mm.) Check out our other gorgeous strands of natural Peruvian Opal while you're in the shop - it might be a great time to stock up on even more, before they get snapped up!
