Large-Hole Beads

Wooden BeadsWe get loads of people asking us what size hole our beads have, and why don’t we quote the hole-size in the listing?

The answer is that as we specialize in semi-precious, the majority of our customers’ already know that natural beads always have small holes of around 0.4mm.

Obviously, the larger the bead: the larger the hole – but if the hole was bigger in semi-precious beads or pearls, they would fall apart!

Large Hole BeadsLarge Hole BeadsHowever, you can make the hole as large as you wish with a Beading Reamer. This is a type of file, often with diamond-coating to cut hard stone, that smooths and enlarges a bead’s hole. We don’t sell these: just Google Bead Reamer.

Large Hole BeadCountless non-semi precious beads have large holes: like wood, metal, ceramic, spacer, glass, charm, and plastic beads – and we stock lots of these. Also, many of our wooden beads have 3mm holes, which are ideal for macrame projects with hemp thread, and working with leather cord or wire.

Also, if you want really BIG holes, we sell Donut Beads, with a huge hole in the middle.

Jewellery Is The Ideal Christmas Present

Jewellery is the ideal present for your loved ones. They’ll think of you whenever they wear it. Grab our budget ready-made necklaces, bracelets or rings – or there’s still time to make your own. Jewellery makes a lasting gift!

Since ancient times we’ve been decorating ourselves.

After we’ve taken care of food and shelter needs, safety and relations are our essentials. Once these too are achieved, we tend to crave self-fulfillment. Around this top tier of needs, we seek a feeling of accomplishment. Jewellery serves this yearning.

Other Benefits Of Jewellery:

  • Makes you feel you belong to a particular group – social or cultural status.
  • Shows wealth to attract love, respect or status.
  • Self expression – sends a message to others, and perhaps to ourselves too.
  • Makes you feel good – boosting self confidence.
    Our mind can change our behaviour: our behaviour can change our outcome!

BOXED JEWELLERY FOR CHRISTMAS

Xmas PresentMake sure all your jewellery for others’ is boxed for Christmas. This will enhance your design, making it more appealing and professional – and as a Christmas present, it will look more expensive and easy to wrap. You can buy quality boxes on eBay.

It’s also good to sell matching sets, like earrings or a bracelet with a necklace. Every lady, young or old, loves to receive jewellery – so get making right away!
