At The Bead Shop we have a colourful range of semi-precious gemstones that have been hand-picked and generously priced.
Semi precious beads have been around for a long time and never tire as being ageless in their appeal. As well as being pleasing to the eye, our gemstones are also very adaptable and fit into both traditional and contemporary jewellery designs.
Each of our gemstones serves as a work of art in itself and brings a natural and non-refined quality to your bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings.
Many precious gemstones have an association with birth signs which can make them fabulous gifts if you are looking for something personalised. It is also believed in many circles that gemstones contain healing properties.
If you have decided on semi-precious beads the next step is to think about how you are going to piece them together. Perhaps you need to restock your jewellery making collection or if you are beginning then you might find one of our jewellery making kits handy.
Stringing material is essential if you are making a necklace or bracelet of any kind. Beadalon wire and Beadsmith metallic thread work well with semi-precious gemstone creations. You can also you them in your Kumihimo braided designs.
Don’t forget that you will also need some jewellery findings. We have a wide selection of clasps, crimp ends, earring findings and spiral pendants for your gem stone jewellery piece.
