“beads by any other name?”


Description from J Yee smart chick: inspired by a visit to my fav local bead shop yesterday... was great to see some of the many beads that L.B. has "in person"... and some gorgeous strands of peru rhodocrosite heart shaped beads, selling for $1.79/piece or $45 per whole strand!!!

    thanks downy chick, congrats on picking your “chick” name, welcome!!! BTW, this was originally inspired by a visit yesterday afternoon to my fav local bead shop, I enjoyed seeing some beads in person that L.B. has even though their names were sometimes different. I was somewhat shocked at the price for some lovely strands of peru rhodocrosite they had, beads that are heart shaped, they were $1.79 per piece or about $45 for a whole strand, drool…. :) … however after checking L.B.’s peru rhodocrosite prices and considering the amount of labor to carve stone into such gorgeous “heart” shapes, I guess their prices aren’t quite so shocking… always interesting to compare local and online…

    Thanks! I left for a baseball game yesterday and had a “chick” waiting for me when I got back. I was just doing the very same thing at a bead shop. It’s nice to be able to compare stones in person. I was myself drooling over some gorgeous lampwork flowers, but couldn’t bring myself to spend 50$ for one piece…maybe one day if I marry a very rich man!
