Faceted Beads

Faceted Beads are one of the most frequently used beads that beautify necklaces, bracelets, anklets and many other kind of jewellery. These beads are easily available in online stores and web sites that provide jewellery making products and materials. You get different colours of faceted beads. You also get to choose from the lustrous kinds and the ones with matt finish.

I, personally like, the ones that are coated with aurora borealis. These beads shine and reflect in different colours. They lend a certain depth and contour to the beads. The sharp edges reflect light and glow even in soft light. The faceted beads are easy to work with and can also be woven into different kinds of material. They look fantastic – both as jewellery and also as decoration on accessories.

Making Jewellery with Faceted Stones

Faceted Jewellery

Faceted Stones are stones that are cut in a way that makes the surface flat. And it is due to this flat surface, light tends to reflect better and makes the stone dazzle in light. This quality of faceted stones make them an excellent object to be used in jewellery.

One of my hobbies is to make jewellery. I have always made jewellery with beads so far. When i got to know about faceted stones and how simple it is to make jewellery with faceted stones, I have now decided to make jewellery with them. They will not only help me improvise my hobby but also make the jewellery, even beaded ones look better.

It is very easy to acquire faceted stones. They are easily available in some of the good online sites that provide all the requirements of making jewellery. I have also got my pliers and clasps from one of these sites.
