Bead of the Week

tiny pinkThis is another of our FAVORITE items in the shop -- a gorgeous strand of delicate pink, natural untreated Peruvian Opal beads. They are faceted for a delightful sparkle! Each is approx. 6 mm.
and there are 90 beads on a 17" (approx.) strand.

Break them up and use a touch of gold for earrings, or string them together for a stunning necklace!

Y necklaceA Y necklace incorporates a design that has a long straight pendant in the middle, which serves to form (at least loosely) a letter 'Y'.  Some types of these use an opening clasp in the front, for greater ease in fastening.  This type of necklace is usually short, between 15 and 17 inches long.  The body of the necklace attaches to a longer bead, pendant, or multiple elements.  The example shown here from the site (Rohrjewelry) incorporates moonstone, iolite beads (iolite is a blue-violet or brownish, transparent or translucent gemstone) and cultured blue akoya pearls.  Imagine the beautiful Y Necklaces you could create with any number of the elements from The Bead Collection and/or our own Etsy Site:
