We have a spotlight on 2mm semi-precious beads right now. They may be small but don’t underestimate their ability to create a stunning bracelet with the addition of a few findings. 2mm faceted semi-precious beads are difficult to manufacture. You can imagine how easy it would be to break a small bead during the sanding process.
Simply draped you can see right away that these are not your average beads. These 16 inch strands are in stock in limited quantities.
This grouping includes tourmaline, labradorite, lapis lazuli, pyrite and rhodonite.
I loved the rhodonite and pyrite and used them for the bracelets. I chose to unstring them all and place them in a storage jar. I don’t want to lose one single bead.
They have great holes and I strung them quickly using bead stringing wire. I opted to use gold findings, so for one bracelet I used Ez-Crimps to close my stringing ends. If you have not used them, I can tell you they create professional ends in the quickest time. For the second bracelet I used a traditional wire guardian and crimp.
