You are probably familiar with most types of glass beads now as I have discussed them with you before. But there are still some kinds I’d like to share to give you an idea which ones to get as gifts for people you cherish and for your personal use too.
These are the handcrafted glass beads which come in a wide array of variety, designs, styles, prints and patterns. They are the most artistic of the bunch because of the colors they produce when light strikes them, the quality of their shimmer as they sparkle under the light. They are sometimes even mistaken for real gemstones. They come in various shapes, sizes and colors.
As its name suggests, these glass beads are shaped like a fish. Typically, they are made from high quality soft glass with a small hole in the middle where string can pass. They are available in different kinds of fish designs of various colors.
These are the letter glass beads that take the shape of the English alphabet. They are best for making any accessory more personalized than any other type of glass beads. They are usually meant for bracelets or as pendants in necklaces. People also sometimes choose to spell the complete first name of the person they are making the accessory for.
Ladies who are in love or those who feel a great deal of care for the people they love tend to purchase heart shaped beads to convey their love through the necklace or bracelet they are making. Heart shaped glass beads appeal to people’s emotions and as such, are considered as romantic glass beads. This kind is especially perfect when used as a gift during Valentine’s Day.
These are the kinds of beads that are truly elegant and classic in nature. Crystal beads are those made of gemstones like diamonds, sapphires and rubies to name a few.There are still many other glass beads out there but these are the types that typically get sold in the market because of their design and style. You can choose which ones you need depending on the occasion or the purpose of your gift.
