Beehive beads are very freeform tab and lentil beads, often worked with silver-rich glass for iridescence and shine and embellished with all manner of fun things. The size and shape of the lenticular beads lend themselves to bracelets and earrings especially.
These items are not held in stock, but you can commission any of them be made just for you, in a number of bead set sizes.
Browse the sub-sections below and add your selections to the cart, checking out in the normal way. Once your order and payment is received, your order will be booked in my studio diary on a first come, first served basis. Please allow up to 14 days for me to make your beads.(If you order other stock items on the same order, all items will be held and despatched together once the custom beads are made.)
You can choose sets of 3, 5, 7 or 10 beads per style/colour - click in to each colourway to view pricing. Please order all the beads you will need of a colourway at the same time - that way they are made together in the same beadmaking session. Even with designs I have made many times over, there is a unique rhythmn to each session in exactly how I work the various materials and how they behave. So the very best match will always come if the beads are made together.
If you don't see the particular style or colourway of beads you fancy - please email me and let me know what you are looking for and we can work together to create just what you are looking for.
(Please note - beads made to order are bespoke and therefore non-refundable except at my discretion. If you have any questions about booking me to make some beads for you, please ask before placing your order.)
