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.

Peru Opal 6Peruvian opals are rare, and the authentic ones come from only one area: the Andes in Peru. This particular strand has 47 beads in it, ranging from 10 - 15 mm. The color reminds one of the Carribean Sea -- translucent blue -- sometimes with soft brown accents. In healing folklore, this stone is believed to aid in quieting the mind, for meditation or sleep. You can find this very special item at our Etsy.com store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/129215044/peruvian-opal-beads

 

 

larimar pendant with aquamarineThe bead of the week is our fabulous Larimar piece, perfect for a fine necklace with a silver chain. Wondering what to get mom for mother's day? This might be a good choice if her birthstone happens to be an aquamarine (note the small aquamarine accent), or if she -- like us -- is in love with the dreamy blue-sky look of Larimar.
