Designer Beads

Designer beads. Mineshaft carries a huge range of gemstone designer beads. All our beads are on sterling silver or gold plated sterling silver clasps. Any ‘silver’ beads are sterling silver. We select beads from not only the biggest bead manufacturers but also many small specialist bead factories. Many of our designer gemstone beads are assembled by Marianne, who has had many years experience and a great eye for coordination. The end result are quality and superior gemstone beads. If there are any beads that interest you please send us an e mail request (Go to… About Us and move down to Contact Us) and we will send more pictures and any information such as length, size of beads etc etc. We will also send a picture of the beads around one of our lovely ladies necks. Most of our gemstone bead necklaces are one of a kind. We will endeavour to keep this page up to date but at peak trading seasons that will be difficult.
