Carrier beads UK – well, what is that? Simply, these are 9x17mm two-hole carrier beads sold here in the UK. They are made in the Czech Republic, from glass. So, they are top quality, beautiful beads.
What are Carrier Beads UK?
Well, you may or may not be aware, but carrier beads are the latest trend to hit the beading market. (I’m writing this in March 2017. So, if you’re reading this at a later date, that statement may not be accurate!)
Why have they become so popular? Well, someone discovered that you can make a little strip of Peyote to wrap around these beads. So, then you use their two-holes for stringing. You have stunning jewellery with little decorated beads.
The two-hole structure gives you scope for designing different strung variations. They work well both as bracelets and necklaces.
Personally, I happen to think that the colour selection I have in stock here are also good enough to just use on their own!
But it’s such great fun designing those little Peyote strips. So, why not?!
I have a selection of colours on offer here. So, please choose what you would like from the menu.
I have done my best to photograph these so the colours reproduce accurately. But, as with all beads, the colour you see on your screen may look a little different when you get the actual beads. This is an unfortunate fact because different screens render images differently.
About the Beads
My carrier beads UK are sold in strands of 15 beads. So, you are buying a strand when you place your order. As I said above, they are made from Czech Glass. They measure 9mm wide and 17mm long.
If the colour you want is out of stock, you can place a back order. I will then email you to let you know roughly when new stock is due to arrive. Typically it is two weeks or less, but these beads have been so popular that it can be longer.
If your order also includes some other products that are in stock, I will send the products that are available immediately. Then I will send the back ordered products on as soon as they reach me.
