Rio Ribbed Rounds| Glass Bead Set

 

This set of Rio Party color beads is now MADE TO ORDER. A color reaction between a rare, no-longer-made glass and two more common highly reactive glasses. There is no predicting how the colors will develop but a riot is pretty much guaranteed! You will find baby blue, purple, lavender, burnt orange, golden yellow and teal in these. I still have a few vials of the precious glass left but when it’s gone… The party will be over!

The five bead set is a smidge under 3″ long. The smaller pair are about 3/8″ and the larger three are around a 1/2″. $27.50 As always you will receive a photo of your actual beads before mailing!


Sweet Hearts | Chocolate Glass Bead Pair

Pair of inverse matching chocolate hearts glass beads. The press I use puts a slight wave pattern in the back and I have not added my usual “puddle” of glass to the bottom sides. The decorations on top are a swirl of either blackberry or mango with a little heart in the opposite color. Great set for earrings!

12.8mm (1/2 inch) hole to hole x 16.5mm wide $10.00







Chakra Colors | Glass Bead Set

 

The colors of the chakra can be used for meditation or in yogic practices. It is believed that – by concentrating on a color corresponding to a specific body part, healing can be achieved. The colors and their representations in the body are:

Red = Base Chakra
Orange = Sacral Chakra
Yellow = Solar Plexis Chakra
Green = Heart Chakra
Pale Blue = Throat Chakra
Dark Blue = Third Eye Chakra
Amethyst = Crown Chakra

While these beads were made with meditative intent, they can also serve as just a happy rainbow of colors on your bracelet or necklace.

These 7 Big Hole Glass Beads are a basic donut shape and measure 5 mm hole to hole x 12 mm wide. $56.00for the set of made to order beads. The Pandora is not included.
