Gemstones beads, with their rich, sophisticated appearance balanced by an exquisite earthiness and glorious individuality, have long been a coveted material for beaded gemstone necklaces and necklaces. The bead store we worked and taught at (that, unfortunately, closed during the recession) had an amazing gemstone wall that ran from one end of the store to the other. That magical wall had a way of captivating beaders who would stand and study the beautiful variety of glorious gemstones for hours at a time. We miss that gem wall (sniff, sniff). Fortunately, Cara and I were re-inspired when visiting a bead store while traveling that has a beautiful selection of gemstone beads. So, after blowing the budget (who here doesn’t relate to that), we now have our own (mini) gemstone wall with “tons” of cool new gemstone beads for us to play with.
Look for future gemstone necklace patterns that will either feature or incorporate beautiful gemstone beads in a variety of gemstone necklace styles and techniques.
