When I first started making beaded jewelry, I LONGED for an economical way to purchase a wide assortment of high quality beads ...and now I'm able to offer that to you!!!
You will receive the EXACT assortment shown in the photos in a 2 3/4 inch stack-able plastic container,with one lid for each batch of combined jars in one order. When you purchase more of these treasure chests from me, they will all stack together nicely and neatly! Additional jars of this assortment are available-just convo me!
My Bead Bonanza packs all contain a unique assortment of beads. I guarantee that they will be at least 99.99% glass,gemstone, beads, or possibly a few random seed beads.( This particular assortment contains mostly chips and 4 heart beads). Every once in a rare while, there may be a jealous acrylic stow-a-way that jumped into the party, unbeknownst to me! It is also possible that a cabochon (no hole) piece might maybe,possibly jump in. Simply glue these with E-6000 glue, and clamp.
This particular assortment (#5) contains mostly " Chinese turquoise" beads and chips. I put that in quotes, because when I was a beginner, I did not understand that "Chinese turquoise", as it is known "in the trade" is technically dyed howlite, which greatly resembles genuine turquoise, and is a much more economical substitute. I'm not sure of the true mineral content of the turquoise colored chips.
Sizes- I remember when I first started beading, and had NO clue what I was actually ordering! So...Most of these beads have small holes, suitable for Nymo, Fireline, fine wire,etc. Most of them will not fit on leather or cording without using a headpin. They pretty much fill a 5"x5" mat, which has half inch squares. The hearts are approx. 3/4 inch tall. The chips are approx 1/4 inch,-most are a little larger. The bead bonanza lots average 90 grams (14 oz). This particular listing is 92 grams.
If you prefer to have the beads shipped in a baggie, instead of the plastic container, please enter the coupon code BAGGIE prior to purchase, which will deduct $1.00 from your purchase price.
I will be glad to combine shipping for multiple purchases. Please convo for rates to non-continental US states. I ship USPS priority mail, because I am disabled, and they will pick up from my door. Plus, everyone likes to get their goodies quickly!
Please stop by frequently, as I have LOTS of goodies to list! Also, please visit my Etsy "sistershop", RebeccasWell, featuring high end bead embroidered jewelry. Lots of inspiration there, too! (Also check my sold listings).
