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.

dichroic 2This is a set of five gorgeous dichroic glass beads/pendants, with shades of gold, blue, green, orange, and more -- depending on the light. Approx. 2 mm. holes are drilled horizontally through the middle of each pendant. They are each approx. 30 mm. long (a little over 1") and approx. 10 mm. wide (about 1/2"). The pendants were each lovingly handcrafted by JoAnn Wedge, an incredible artisan and jewelry designer (one is signed 'Wedge' on the back). Use them for a special bracelet or necklace design -- we can't wait to see what our artisan friends will say about them! If you shop, don't forget to use your Friend/Fan Discount Code (Code 14123 at checkout) for your 20% discount!
