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.

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.
