Beads By Phone

Beads By PhoneI must be old: I remember calls from phone boxes. Getting coins ready and a card for international. Things have changed a lot in 64 years. In the 21st-centry science fiction has become reality.

Today, those not so old, use their phones to buy everything they need. You too can purchase beads on the phone – not by talking, but online with a smart phone.

If you really haven’t a smart phone yet, buy one immediately, they start from under £100 and your children will teach you! Best to buy the phone (or a hand-me-down when the kids upgrade) and pay-as-u-go data, rather than an expensive contract. Shop around online for the best deals – costs have plummeted.

Our new shop has the latest technology to allow anyone to easily order by smartphone. For your protection, not only is the checkout secure (https ), but the entire website.

You can also use your smartphone to search the shop, select specific beads and save them to your WishList. Then anytime latter (when you get home), you can login to our shop and complete the order from another computer.

SUMMER BEADS

Summer Beads

Yarmouth BeachSummer jewellery is in either cooling blues and light-greens, or vibrant bright reds and yellows reflecting the setting sun. Aquamarine and citrine is great for summer.

Wooden BeadsCalsilica beads are also good with their vivid wild colour. Ethnic necklaces and bracelets are popular this time of year too.

Picture is our summer carnival wooden beads, and bottom is some of our calsilica beads. Have fun making popular jewellery between time on the beach and BBQs.

SEPTEMBER’S GEMSTONE

Sapphire is the birthstone for September, and is chemically and structurally the same as ruby, an aluminum oxide. However, where rubies are only red, sapphires come in every color but red: blue, golden yellow, reddish-orange, or violet.

We have some sapphire beads at our bead show, but generally Sapphire is too expensive for most crafters, so a great alternative for September is blue chalcedony – which can look similar at a fraction of the cost. Chalcedony is a very fine-grained variety of quartz with a waxy luster with a compact fibrous structure.

ALTERNATE GEMSTONE FOR SEPTEMBER: CHALCEDONY

Chalcedony

Natural chalcedony is usually grayish blue and sometimes with hints of pink, however it can be colour enhanced to light blue. It’s said chalcedony was used as a sacred stone by the Native Americas, promoting stability within the ceremonial activities of the tribe.

 

chalcedony Beads

Chalcedony is thought to augment emotional balance, vitality, stamina, endurance, kindness, charity and friendliness. It also supposedly alleviates hostilities, irritability and melancholy.
