Semi-Precious stones

Semi-Precious stones formed from minerals and rocks are organic. Jewellery stones give the creators of handmade jewellery a huge field to show off, especially when it comes to their use in bracelets, necklaces or earrings. You can use them in any technique of jewellery making. Semi-Precious stones are great, among others for soutache embroidery, bead embroidery and for traditional jewellery. Due to the large number of colours and shapes to choose from, you can create designs that match every outfit and occasion. The stones for bracelets are most often placed on a jewellery elastic with various beads, e.g. pendants or spacers. Jewellery gemsones in the shape of rounds are also ideal for bracelets on memory wire. The stones blend in perfectly with metal elements, beads or other types of stones, creating interesting and unique jewellery compositions. Jewellery stones braided with soutache cords are used to create beautiful necklaces or earrings. Stones wrapped with jewellery wire can be transformed into fancy jewellery elements.
