50 Stone Chip Beads
For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Spessartine chips. Chips are the small leftovers from tumbled stones or shells, with holes drilled through them.
Mix them with other stone beads and metallic spacers for endless possibilities.
[Please allow for natural variations in the stones.]
Spessartine is also known as Mandarin Garnet, and it is extremely rare. It is a bright orange, sparkly, cheerful. These chips are VERY tiny. A package of 50 will cover about 3-4 inches, so be sure to order enough to complete your project. These have very tiny holes, so you will need extra-thin beading wire or needles to work with these.
