Cali Beads Inspired Jewelry Making Tutorials

Here’s another bead inspiration that can add dimension to your jewelry designs – Cali beads!

These beads feature an oval shape with tapered ends. Three stringing holes run through the center of each bead, so you can use them in unique ways. The edges of the bead will stand out when strung. Add them to multi-strand designs as a spacer bar, try them in bead weaving, and more. They are versatile in size, so they will work in a variety of projects. If you’re making flower shaped components, Cali beads are perfect to use!
