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.

shellThese are stunning Conus shell beads of nomadic women of the Sahara desert. Rare and difficult to find, they may seem pricey but they are worth it! We have two strands, one with 140 beads, the other with approx. 130 beads. They are distinguishable by the largest beads in the center of the strands -- one has smooth rounded beads at the center; the other has rougher, thinner disk-type beads at the center. You can see the difference in the photos. Bead sizes are graduated, ranging from approx. 7 mm. at the smallest to approx. 35 mm. at the largest.
