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.

turquoise bead necklaceThis is a handcrafted necklace of natural turquoise and natural Italian red branch coral. Exquisite! The focal beads on this necklace are large (ranging from about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch). The matrix in the stones inspired Shannon to create this piece; the turquoise reminds us both of New Mexico sky, which is one of our true loves.
