Here we offer a lovely collection of 16 pieces of unique hand-scribed Jade balls, that could make an exciting addition to your bead collection.

Most creative beaders will attest to the importance of having a healthy selection of semi-precious beads on hand to use when creating jewellery.

Jade beads are popular with beaders bent on creating ethnic-style tribal or boho-style statement jewellery because of their beautiful pale green and pale yellow colours or how each bead has been shaped or carved. The majority of our jade is processed in Afghanistan but comes from the Henan region in northern China.

Sources claim that Jade has long been considered to be the ‘Imperial Gem’ – so utmost respect for the semi-precious stone must be attached to its very being.

Because of the stone’s reverence all over Asia – and throughout the centuries, Jade has been used, not only to create many “utilitarian and ceremonial objects, from indoor decorative items to jade burial suits”, it has been used to create some of the finest jewellery. 

Purists also believe jade is both complex and spiritual – with healing qualities which can help cure kidney and loin ailments.

That said, the Afghan Jade Balls in this collection, have been heavily discounted and now cost $1.50 each; they belong in your jewellery-making box!

All contain a generous 2mm centre-drill hole which is suitable for threading round leather, tigertail, or craftline (similar to fishing line).  

The accompanying photos illustrate what to expect in your order, while some images have been enlarged to show detail.
