Purl Soho's semi-precious Gemstone Beads are luminescent little beauties, each bead a gorgeous nugget from the earth itself!! These large-size beads measure 6-8mm in diameter and come on strands tucked inside pretty glass tubes. Amethyst and Carnelian beads are on approximately 14-inch strands, and Lapis comes on a 6-inch strand. We used these beads for our Floating Gemstones Necklace Pattern, but the possibilities for making incredible things are absolutely endless! Now 40% Off!
