About Gemstone Beads

Feel like a queen when you bedazzle your neck with gemstone beads. Create elegant pieces of jewelry with these beads. Whether you decide to start from a large focal pendant or you want to create a luxurious repeating pattern of natural stones, every gem that goes into the necklace makes it uniquely yours. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to the order you string the beads onto your necklace. Start with a choice between round or faceted beads. From there decide on a color palette or type of stone. Create patterns by alternating the bead colors. Twist several strands of 4 mm beads together to create a thicker necklace. Alternatively, you could break up patterned sets up 10 mm beads with smaller ones between them. Whichever gemstone beads you need for you next project, you are sure to find a selection of new beads on eBay. Buy your beads as a lot so that you don’t have to worry about running out of beads before your necklace, bracelet, or anklet is finished. Then way, when anyone compliments you on your jewelry, you can stick your nose in the air and tell them you made it yourself.
