Every Bead Tells a Story


Every Bead tells a Story....What is it about bead bracelets that draws our eyes to them, makes us want to add more beads to them? Women have been collecting charms for centuries and bead bracelets are simply a new way of collecting memories on your wrist. We all have a story to tell, a memory to preserve and favorite colors we love to wear. Beads are a fun, fantastic to show your personal style, your history, your memories on your wrist. Decorate your arms, your necks, and now even your ears with Beads. Choose from Murano Glass Beads, Silver Beads, Two Tone Beads and even Crystal Beads to adorn your jewelry.



  • You can add as few or many beads that will fit on a 7 or 8 inch length bracelet. Many women create theme bead bracelets, showcasing the many moods, or themes of their lives.
  • Measure your wrist, then add 1" - 1"5" to the length if wearing regular silver beads, or add 2" if you are adding murano glass beads, as murano glass beads are thicker in diameter. Also another way to measure your wrist, is to measure your watch (most women wear watches tight) and add an inch or two to the length.
  • Adult bracelets thickness and Kids Bracelets thickness is very different. You cannot wear a kids bead on an adult bracelet. Most Adult bracelets measure 3.0mm diameter, whereas Kids Bracelets measures 2.00mm diameter.

  • Stopper Beads are just that - they stop the other beads from sliding around the bracelet. Stopper beads come in various shapes and sizes. Some have a rubber grip core, so they stay in place.
  • Clip Beads are similar to stopper beads, only they actually open up and clip on to wherever you want to add them instead of sliding on the bracelet, they clip on! They do the same thing as stopper beads, they hold your other beads in place.
