Bead of the Week

glass redThis is a set of red glass beads and pendant for your matching earring/necklace designs. The earring beads (approx. 1 mm. long) consist of clear red glass set in gold oval frames. My understanding is that these are vintage, from the 1950's. The pendant (approx. 1" long and 1 mm. wide) is of blown glass with gold and other elements, with a generous horizontal hole (through the red section), ready for stringing. This is not vintage, but it is beautifully handcrafted, and it goes so nicely with these beads that we are offering it as a set for your jewelry designs.

ChrysocolaThis gorgeous teal blue cabochon (approx. 30 high x 38 width" mm.) is of stabilized Chrysocolla, a hydrous copper silicate found in several places in the world, including Russia, Nevada in the USA, the Congo, Chile, Israel and Mexico. Often confused with turquoise, chrysocolla is often found in unusual multicolor combinations as well as in blue or green.

We LOVE this dramatic specimen and can envision it paired with Chrysoprase and Cherry Quartz, or whatever natural gemstones and/or precious metals your heart desires! Now listed at $60, but don't forget our 20% off discount just for our friends and fans; use Coupon Code 14123 at checkout!
