Bead Strands

More Info

Our collection of bead strands offers a vibrant spectrum of energy-infused elegance. Each bead, handcrafted from authentic gemstones, captures the essence of natural beauty and carries with it distinct metaphysical properties. Whether you wish to create your own jewelry or seek the healing benefits of gemstone beads, our collection stands as a beacon of creativity and personal empowerment.

How are crystal beads made?

Creating crystal beads is an intricate process that requires both skill and precision. It begins with the selection of high-quality crystals or gemstones, which are carefully extracted from their natural habitats. These raw materials are then put through a meticulous process that involves cutting into the desired shape, be it round, faceted, or any other design. This is followed by polishing to bring out the inherent luster and beauty of the crystal. Finally, a hole is drilled through the bead, making it ready for stringing. Every step of this process is carefully controlled to maintain the integrity of the crystal's unique vibrational energy.

Uses for bead strands

The versatility of crystal beads allows them to be used in a plethora of ways. Primarily, they are the perfect component for making unique and personal jewelry pieces such as bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these beads can be selected for their specific metaphysical properties to create a piece that supports your personal spiritual journey or healing needs. Outside of jewelry, they can be used in crafts, home decor, or simply carried around in a pocket as a personal talisman. They also play a role in spiritual practices, where they can be used in prayer beads or as part of meditation.

How to bead your own jewellery

Beading your own jewelry can be an enjoyable and fulfilling endeavor. It all starts with your vision - decide on the type of jewelry you wish to create, be it a necklace, bracelet, or a pair of earrings. You then choose your preferred crystal beads based on their color, shape, size, or even their metaphysical properties. Once you have your materials, begin stringing your beads onto your chosen cord, wire, or thread in the order of your design. You can add spacers or charms for added variety and interest. Once your design is complete, secure the ends with a knot or a clasp. Beading your own jewelry allows for complete customization, and the process itself can be therapeutic and calming.

How can I tell if my crystal beads are real?

Discerning genuine crystal beads from artificial ones can seem daunting, but a few key characteristics can help. Authentic crystals are typically denser and thus heavier than glass or plastic imitations. They also maintain a constant cool temperature and might warm up slightly in response to being held - a sign of their energy conducting nature. In terms of appearance, genuine crystals often exhibit natural flaws or inclusions, and their color or pattern may vary slightly from bead to bead, unlike synthetic beads which have more uniformity. Furthermore, the refractive index of real crystals often results in a unique sparkle or 'glow' that is hard to replicate. When in doubt, it's best to purchase from reputable sources that can provide authenticity certificates or guarantees.
