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.

red earringsIf you love LIPSTICK RED, you will love these! The color just pops, as you can see. Abalone and red spiny oyster shell have been combined for a stunning look. We have two sets of these earrings -- one with a total length (including curve of wire where hanging length begins) of slightly over 3"; actual earring length (not including wire) is approx. 2 1/4". The other set is slightly smaller, with a hanging length of approx. 2 1/2" and without the wire, approx. 1 3/4". Earring sets are sold separately; each set is $38.
