Bead of the Week

glass redThis is a set of red glass beads and pendant for your matching earring/necklace designs. The earring beads (approx. 1 mm. long) consist of clear red glass set in gold oval frames. My understanding is that these are vintage, from the 1950's. The pendant (approx. 1" long and 1 mm. wide) is of blown glass with gold and other elements, with a generous horizontal hole (through the red section), ready for stringing. This is not vintage, but it is beautifully handcrafted, and it goes so nicely with these beads that we are offering it as a set for your jewelry designs.

Diamonds are intense, radiant, said by mystics to awaken higher visionary states.  Diamonds are the hardest of all substances.  Though they're often colorless, they can also be yellow, brown, blue, pink, green, orange or red.  They have been made naturally over eons in the earth, from crystallized carbon.  Although they are found worldwide, most come from Australia, Russia, South Africa, and Brazil.  The diamond is April's birthstone, and for centuries they have been said to provide spiritual protection, as well as qualities such as faithfulness, purity, and enhancement of love.
