Ready to Wear Glass Beads 1.9.14

One of the things I love about a well designed, artisan glass bead is...many of them are "ready to wear!" No jewelry making required! There are off mandrel pendants, simple slide beads for friction clasp chains and big hole beads. Many of you are familiar with these as Pandora, Troll, Links of London etc are all big hole glass bead charms. But take a look at what one of our artisans in up to with her big hole beads.

Laurie of Isinglass Design has been making really big holed glass beads to use as a scarf slide! She says these also look great on dreds!

  1. Well gosh, Holly- thanks for the plug. You'd need a lot of dreads to fill up one of these babies!
