Our signature single strand bead necklaces are something everyone should have. We use the very best beads available. Don Lucas shops for these beads himself, and in some cases he buys the rough material and has them cut. Many of the beads used are not available at all in today’s market so you are guaranteed a piece that no one else will have. These necklaces are strung on a beading string called Beadalong which we have found to be the most durable of all the other products on the market. The beads we use in these necklaces are cut from a variety of materials including Red and Pink Coral, Spiny Oyster Shell in a variety of colors, assorted Turquoise including Sleeping Beauty, Kingman, and some Chinese, purple Charoite, rich green Gaspeite from Australia, which is no longer available, and Variscite. Keep in mind when ordering that your necklace may not be bead for bead exactly like the product on the website, but it will certainly be very close having the same theme.
