Gemstone Beads come in every imaginable shape and size, with different colors and textures. The type of beads you buy depends on the appearance you want in your jewelry. For example, a large, rose quartz heart-shaped bead drilled through the top can be used as a pendant or focal piece when mixed with other quartz gemstones in a necklace. Round pillows of golden citrine complemented by smaller, brown andalusite gemstone beads would make a lovely bracelet. At the Bead Traders, our online beads and beading supplies are always bought in volume, giving you the best beads at great prices!
