Also of interest:  Sterling Silver Liquid Silver Beads

All gemstone heishi beads are made from reconstituted stone block.


 


GEMSTONE CHIP STRANDS

***CLOSE-OUT GEMSTONE CHIP SPECIALS***

Chip sizes, as represented in our listed prices, are typically 7-12mm, with some stones, like aquamarine, with smaller 6-7mm sized chips.  Order by strand.  Strands are 34"-36" temporary strung, with only a few exceptions where strands are slightly shorter.  Some rarer chip-stones come in 15-16" strands.   [We've noticed a trend from our distributors of slightly shorter lengths, than several years ago.]  These beads have a regular size hole about .08-1mm diameter.  They require a 22-gauge wire, and sometimes may accommodate a 20-gauge wire.  Some 6-7mm sized chip beads will have a smaller size hole, requiring a 24-gauge or smaller wire, fireline thread, soft touch, soft flex, or tigertail.


JUMBO NUGGETS

On each strand, the beads will vary from 18x13mm to 20x13mm.  
Strands are 16" long.

CINNABAR BEADS

"Cinnabar" is a red lacquered wood from China.  The wood is stained to match the color of the mineral cinnabar.  These beads usually come on a 14-15" strand.

CINNABAR PENDANTS

Many of these pendant pieces are also drilled side to side, and will work as a "bead", as well. The pieces that are drilled as beads are meant to dangle on a bead cord or wire.

CABOCHONS

We offer a limited selection of cabochons. These are flat-backed stones that are used in settings, or to bead-weave around, or to wire-wrap, to make pendants, bracelets, earrings and the like.

NOTE: For those stones with markings or matrixing, there will be considerable variation in appearance from stone to stone. If you are ordering more than 1 piece, and you need these to be closely matching, click on the ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS link when you checkout, and let us know. We'll do our best to match, and will let you know if we can't.

Sorry, we do not have a Printed Catalog.

NOTE: We do not provide Samples of items




NOTE: The supply and availability of beads is very variable. Please make note of this when you are planning any project! Also MAKE NOTE and REALIZE that the exact color and size of many beads also varies, sometimes considerably, from production lot to production lot. Just because you ordered 100 navy blue oval beads in June, don't assume that when you re-order, that the navy blue color will be exact, or the size will be exact.

Also, don't assume that the same color will still be available when you order next -- even with a basic color like 'black'.

Also in your planning, assume that the variability of size/color/shape in any lot of hand-crafted beads will also have considerable variability.

Don't hesitate, when planning a project, or ordering from us, to ask us questions about supply and availability of beads. We'll do our best to find answers and options for you. This may mean having to modify your design plans somewhat, or for us to find an alternative, though sometimes higher cost, supplier. It may also mean buying your key beads or other parts and findings in larger quantities. At Land of Odds, we are all too familiar with the trials, tribulations and joys of jewelry design. We'll work closely with you.

If you are ordering SEVERAL ITEMS WHICH YOU MUST HAVE "ALL OR NONE", then please email or notify us of this fact when you place your order. Normally, we ship what is available, and out-of-stock the rest. We do not typically call or email about what is unavailable, unless specifically requested to do so..

We cannot be responsible for the color of dyed stones.

Listed weights and sizes for cast jewelry and beads pieces are approximate.

Please be aware that the colors of images you see on your screen may differ from the true colors of any item offered for sale. We do our best to see that there is as little distortion from the true colors as possible, but different browsers and different computer graphics hard- and soft-ware do many different things with colors. Even when switching between Netscape, Internet Explorer and AOL, some colors will vary considerably, some will vary a little, and others won't vary at all.
