Bead Shapes

Sorry for the late post today - my daughter was a bit under the weather today and had been up all night with her 4 week old, so I was helping out with her two little ones so she could get some rest!

I promised you information on bead shapes, so I'm keeping that promise. I had found this great website on bead shapes a while back, so I'm going to cheat today and post the link to the site. The owner of the site did a great job of coming up with examples of most of the common bead shapes! There are, of course, more shapes, but this will give you a very good idea of what some of the terms and shapes assigned to the different bead types are.

Here's the link to the site!

Hopefully things will be back to normal tomorrow, so I'm hoping to be able to do a post on gemstone cuts and discuss some of my opinions on what the best cuts are for different jewelry designs!

Hope your Monday was a happy one!
