Bead MakingTurquoise Bead Making

Making Turquoise Beads has been going on worldwide for thousands of years.

Making Beads is an ancient art form which dates back to the beginning of modern man, well over 7,000 years ago. Bead making began when native peoples of the world ground colourful stones on hard rocks to create a round bead for a ritual or self adornment. Beaded making tools probably started around 3,000 B.C. and actually became fairly safisticated by 1,000 A.D. Bead Making was very strong in the days of Columbus as Trade Ships would use all types of glass beads as ballasts in the ships. Making beads has been an important trade for hundreds of years.

Making Turquoise Beads began around 5,000 years ago in Egypt and has continued to date. We have a great video on how to make Turquoise beads from raw material to the finished bead. You can see our Turquoise Bead Making Video here.

Turquoise Beaded Earrings are in vogue today, Southwestern styles of Turquoise beaded earrings are one of our specialties as we have collected authentic Turquoise Beads for a long time and we use authentic Turquoise Beads to make our Turquoise Beaded Earrings.

We use Sterling Silver findings on our Turquoise Jewelry, which includes all of our beaded earrings. Nattarika found all kinds of great Sterling Silver findings at the Tucson Gem Show to add to her Turquoise Jewelry findings collection. She will use these  findings in conjunction with her collection of authentic Turquoise Beads to create some awesome Turquoise Beaded Earrings this year.
We hope you like her work and are able to enjoy wearing a pair of her Turquoise Earrings as they are unique and look wonderful when worn.
