This week, Maruti Beads has donated an assortment of Kashmiri beads for another lucky winner. Maruti Beads employs artisans and crafts people who fashion Kashmiri beads by hand from polymer clay, marble powder and resin. The beads are embellished with faceted glass, rhinestones, seed beads, wire and various metal components and, because each one is made by hand, no two are exactly alike.
These are big-holed, durable beads. I think they might be too small for a Pandora-style bracelet. But if you like the way they look, Maruti Beads offers Pandora-style beads as well.
Or how about mixing them with silver beads or lamp worked beads?
Besides Kashmiri Bead, Maruti Beads makes Lac Beads, Shambala Bracelets and a new style bead they call the Maruti Bead. You can reach them on any of the following social media links or at their website.
