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.

blogI'm considering switching the Bead Blog posts from weekly to monthly -- what do you all think? Either way, I hope you'll weigh in and let me know if you enjoy reading these every week, or if once a month would work better for you -- especially those who are subscribed or thinking about subscribing. Please comment below on your preference or write to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

As always, I enjoy getting your comments, feedback and guidance. I especially like to hear about topics you'd like to see covered. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Until Next Time,
