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.

larimar and silver pendant

This week we feature one of our great finds from the 2014 Tucson Gem & Mineral show: This sky blue Larimar pendant is set in sterling silver. Just add a silver chain for an instantly exquisite necklace. The picture doesn't quite do this piece justice. The patterns are well defined and gorgeous! The stone is a freeform shape that is approximately 27 x 36mm with a sterling silver bezel and bail with a 5mm opening . Genuine, untreated Larimar from the Dominican Republic. Don't forget our special deal for friends and fans: 20% off this and everything in the shop with Coupon Code 14123 at Checkout.
