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.

Just changed the name of our Etsy Shop to 'BeadyEyedBird'.  Next plan is to send out regular blog posts on the ABC's (or maybe I should say A to Z story) of beads and gems.  Hopefully it will be a valuable educational exercise for those who want to know more about the history and nature of the universe of exotic materials that go into beaded and jeweled creations.
