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.

So happy to be headed for New Orleans in a few days, mostly for work on a board I serve on, but there will be a tiny bit of time for (hopefully) visiting beloved relatives (GO CAJUNS!), visiting my childhood home, and scouring the French Quarter for exotic beads.  Maybe my old favorite the Voodoo Shop will have something interesting, just in time for Halloween!  Here in Santa Fe there's an incredible jewelry artist (need to find out her name!) doing gorgeous beaded earrings with shiny black skull beads and sparkly crystals -- never have skulls looked so beautiful!  We'll see what we find in New Orleans and I'll keep you posted!
