About Semi-Precious Beads & Gemstones

Firm favourites with beaders, jewellery makers and crafters, semi-precious beads are versatile additions to the crafting toolbox. Made from natural material, they also have unique markings and colourings, meaning that they allow you to create one-of-a-kind items that are truly miniature works of art. Whether you want to create a bracelet made from an eclectic mix of gemstones or spice up a pair of earrings with semi-precious skull beads, The Bead Shop has everything you need.



Whether you’re wearing something casual or classy, Black Onyx Round Beads can be the perfect addition to any outfit. You could use them to create a long necklace or a jet black bracelet joined with an end fastener along with a toggle or clasp. To create a summery bracelet that oozes effortless beach style, consider Sodalite Chips. These blue and white crystal-like gemstones are said to have healing powers and aid meditation. Not only do Sodalite beads have a reputation for being soothing and calming, they’re also thought to stimulate courage. To create an ocean-like feel, team them with other blue pieces of jewellery including glass, pearl and seed beads.  Don't forget that you'll need some jewellery findings when making your creations. We have a wide selection of clasps, crimp ends, earring findings and spiral pendants for your gem stone jewellery piece.
