Jewellery making may go for the fancy and expensive stones and metals, but no one should underestimate the potential of the humble and versatile glass bead. Glass beads come in a huge variety of shapes and colours and sizes and a jeweller can string them into necklaces or build them into other jewellery.

Large and small, simple and intricate, in subtle and flashy colours, transparent or opaque, glass beads go into charm bracelets and lamp work as well as necklaces.
