The Gem Shop beads are cut from our own stock of rough agates and jaspers. The rock is selected for color and pattern and shipped off to expert bead cutters. This selection process allows us to produce beads of exceptional quality. Some of our beads are cut from rock that comes directly from our own mining operations. These beads are exclusive to The Gem Shop and cannot be found anywhere else.
Full strands are about 16" long. One half and one quarter strands are also available for creative mixing with other beads on jewelry projects.
The pendant beads are individual center piece beads, and most of them are cut and polished in our shop in Cedarburg.
Be sure to check our cabochon page for matching cabochons to go with your bead project.
