A Bunch of Beads for Sale on Etsy – Help Me Destash!

Lately I’ve been madly listing beads in my Etsy store in an effort to declutter and destash my studio. I have HUNDREDS of beads of all sorts: glass beads, semi-precious stone beads, wooden beads, pearls, some gemstones, and more. You name it, I’ve got it. And I don’t need it!!! I’m not even really making jewelry any more, will never do it professionally, and have decided to shut down Hippo Mojo so I won’t be making any more hippo earrings either. Okay, I’m a little bummed about that. I LOVE making hippo earrings. So maybe I’ll still make some for Trilby Works. At any rate, I am cleaning up and cleaning out! Here’s some of what I have listed:

These will be available in my Etsy store only, not in my TrilbyWorks.com shop – mainly because I only have limited quantities of the beads and I don’t plan to carry them permanently. Feel the need to bead? I’ve got you covered!

Beads for Sale


Soocho Jade Freeform Faceted Semi-Precious Stone Beads

These large beads are freeform and faceted and will lend an earthy, natural look to your jewelry designs. Each bead is different so please allow for slight variations in color.

These beads are perfect for the larger style chunky jewelry that is in style now.

This listing is for one 8-inch strand (about 6 beads). Individual beads measure about 1 1/4″ to 1 3/4″ wide and about 1″ to 1 1/4″ wide.

ABOUT SOOCHO JADE
Soocho jade is actually serpentine, an attractive green stone that takes a nice polish and is suitable for carving. It is frequently used as a substitute for jade and is sometimes difficult to distinguish from jade. Though color and the greasy luster are shared by serpentine and jade, the two stones are chemically very different. Serpentine is a much softer stone and is usually olive green to yellow in color, in contrast to the emerald green of most true jade.

Healing Properties
Serpentine is a beneficial and versatile stone. It is said by mystics to help with emotional cleansing, psychic powers, and attract love and money.


Mexican Zebra Jasper Rondelle Bead

Made from natural Mexican zebra jasper materials, these glorious beads are painstakingly dyed to imitate the glorious purple color of precious Charoite (a rare silicate mineral), blue Larimar, or green. Some natural zebra-pattern and black spots are still visible because of the natural materials. Each bead is different so please allow for slight variations in color.

These beads are perfect for the larger style chunky jewelry that is in style now.

This listing is for one bead. Please specify color.

ABOUT JASPER
Jasper is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually brown, red, yellow, or green in color. The name means “spotted” or “speckled” stone. Jasper can be highly polished and makes for a striking gemstone for jewelry making. It is the one of the traditional birthstones for March.

Healing Properties
Jasper is thought to have a number of metaphysical properties. It brings tranquility during times of stress, provides protection and absorbs negative energy, balances yin and yang, provides courage, and aids thinking. It is further thought to encourage self-honesty, to re-energize the body, and to stimulate imagination.

ABOUT AGATE
Agate is a microcrystalline variety of silica, chiefly chalcedony, characterized by its fineness of grain and brightness of color. Although agates may be found in various kinds of rock, they are classically associated with volcanic rocks and can be common in certain metamorphic rocks.

Agate is thought to balance yin/yang energy and to provide courage, protection, healing, and calming. It enhances creativity, strengthens the intellect, is a stone of harmony and enhances longevity.

ABOUT MURANO GLASS
Murano glass originated on the Italian island of Murano, off the coast of Venice. As a commercial port, the city became famous for its talented glassmakers.

Today, Murano-style pendants are hand-shaped using the same process used for centuries by master craftsmen. These glass beads feature gold foil overlayed by a variety of different colors of Murano glass or fused on the exterior of the bead. The resulting look of gold foil beads is one of richness and elegance, very reminiscent of Venice itself.
