Bead of the Week

ornate heartsTwo ornate 'puffy' silver heart beads, hollow in the center with holes at top and bottom for stringing. Each is about 1" wide and lightweight. Sold as a set of two. I will consider selling them separately -- so let me know if you'd like to buy only one for $19.00.

jadeThis is a lovely hand-carved pendant of natural Nephrite Jade from New Zealand. It was believed by Maori that as a carving was worn against the skin it absorbed some of that person's essence. As carvings were passed down through the family they absorbed essence from each family member, creating a direct ancestral connection through the necklace itself. This is one reason why Maori design is so special, it is more than just an art form. This special piece measures approx. 55 mm long (approx.. 2 1/4") x approx. 30 mm. (just shy of 1 1/4") at its widest point. Thickness is approx. 3 mm. Hole at top for hanging is approx. 3 mm. wide.

aquamarine 3 934x965This lovely strand of 22 aquamarine nugget beads (ranging in size from approx. 10 - 20 mm. long) is perfect for your bold natural stone designs or for reshaping into faceted gemstones. Consider as a gift for friends and relatives born in March - this is their special birthstone. Beautiful and hard to find! Price just REDUCED!

silverThis set of 3 sterling silver pendants is shimmering! Use for an earring/necklace set; They're 2 - 3 cm. & pre-drilled for ready attachment to findings.

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.
