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.

Garrick Beck at Natural Stones on Baca Street (in Santa Fe) is a great resource for all stones and crystals au naturelle.  PLUS he has an incredible wealth of knowledge about gemstones, their quality, properties and value.  I just dropped by for a delicious Chai at his neighbor's place, Counter Culture -- and Donna Nova the fabulous glass bead designer is also next door.  A veritable mecca for jewelry designers and beading enthusiasts.  Visit them, and buy often.
