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.

 We just discovered a delightful bead store in Durango, Colorado:  Beads and Beyond.  The treasures we found there (now on sale on this web site) include a necklace/earring pendant set of hammered sterling silver, and delicate butterfly wings (ethically harvested) encased in silver.  Check out their web site if you're interested in learning more about this very friendly Durango store.
