Freshwater Pearls

Unlike other gems, the pearl is born of water and living creatures. Pearls begin as a foreign body embedded within a mollusk's shell. The animal's defense against the foreign body is to form a protective layer of nacre around the intruder. The culturing process simply entails planting a "seed" within the mollusk, normally either a plastic bead or a small piece of shell, nature takes its course and another pearl is born. Our cultured freshwater pearls come in an ever growing variety of shapes, sizes and colors, so whatever your fashion preference you are sure to find the pearl to suit your needs. Ancient beliefs about the origin of the pearl include: moonlight filled dewdrops and Aphrodite's tears of joy. Although not technically a stone, pearl is one of June's birthstones. Currently, the International Commission of Colored Gemstones (CIBJO) recognizes only five organic (once living material) gemstones: Ammolite, amber, pearl, jet, and coral. Also be sure to check out our freshwater pearl mixtures and our flawlessly crafted glass pearls by Jablonex and crystal pearls by Swarovski.

Description: John James needles are high quality and one of our most popular beading needle options. Standard beading needles are very fine and long. The eye of the needle is the same width as the rest of the needle. Choosing the correct beading needle is not an exact science, and different beaders will opt for different sizes and lengths of beading needles. Smaller beads such as seed beads require a slender beading needle with a narrow eye. Beading needle sizes 10 (thickest) through 15 (thinnest) work best. Sizes 10 through 12 work great for most standard seed bead projects, while size 15 works great for tiny seed beads such as 15/0 and macco tubes. If your project requires multiple passes through a bead, you will want to choose a thinner needle. Short sharp beading needles are best for embroidery projects and longer needles are great for loom work.
