A collection of almost 357 mixed freshwater pearl beads, is offered in a special six-strand collection that would suit all serious beaders with a passion for creating fine and delicate jewellery.
Actual bead sizes range between 2mm – 11mm, while colours include white, cream, peacock grey and an orange-pink.
The majority of today’s pearls are freshwater cultured pearls that are farmed and created by using freshwater mussels. Each mussel can produce as many as 25 pearls on each side of its shell.
Freshwater pearls are generally more irregular in shape – when compared to saltwater cultured pearls and tend to appeal more to younger people and designers.
And more importantly, they are less expensive than saltwater pearls.
The majority of these beautiful pearl beads are produced in Taiwan, Japan, USA and China and all contain a 0.5-1mm threading hole.
