50 Stone Chip Beads
For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Black Obsidian 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.]
At first glance, they look like your ordinary run-of-the-mill black stone. But look a little closer. There is a glittering bronze sheen over most of the beads. They have depth and originality. If we had to be stuck on a desert island with only one type of black chip bead, we would choose these.
