The beautiful beads of Tibet

Time: 2012-02-16 23:51:06

 

The people of  Tibet make some gorgeous beads of different sizes, some inlaid with gem stones, and some set  in brass and silver. Tibetan silver is not 925, but is recognized worlwide as a great  silver jewelry product. I’ve found some good sources of these wonderful beads, and am enjoying working with them.  Here are two examples of items I’ve made with some Tibetan beads.  The first is beads that have coral and lapis set in bands of Tibetan silver, and I mixed them with some lapis jasper and Chinese blue glass beads,  then added a 925 closure and earwires.

Tibetan silver beaded necklace and earring set

 

The second example uses 3 Tibetan brass beads, inlaid with coral and turquoise.  Then I used lots of coral and turquoise beads, and added 925 sterling earwires and a Thai S closure on the necklace. Thai silver is actually more pure in silver than 925.
