Gemstones & Freshwater Pearls
Watch the video
Shopping for natural stone beads and freshwater pearls? Eureka has got you covered! Also known as gemstone beads, semi precious beads or natural crystals, these gorgeous beads come in a large variety of shapes, sizes, colors, finishes and qualities. They can be used as substitute, or together with Swarovski Crystal beads and Czech glass. Give your designs some boho flair and an earthy, natural look with these quartz, agate and jasper beads.
Because these are natural products, slight variations in color and size from bead to bead and strand to strand are normal and expected. Despite the small size of some of these beads, they are best used in basic stringing applications. Many of these tiny stones will not withstand multiple passes of string or wire and can crumble or crack with attempted beadweaving. You will have better luck using man made glass or crystal for designs that require multiple passes.
