Aventurine, Amethyst and Smoky Quartz

Some new beads to share with you this weekend . . .

Faceted smoky quartz in 6 and 8mm rondelles.

Faceted aventurine in 6 and 8mm rondelles. Our scanner makes them look more on the blue side when they are actually more of a delicate green hue.

Faceted amethyst in 6mm rondelles.

All of these new gemstone beads are cut in China, which means they have a consistent hole size making wire wrapping and knotting easier and less frustrating (I hate that some of the prettiest gemstone beads have the tiniest holes!).
