Shipwreck Beads is a direct importer of glass, stone, bone and metal beads and bead mixtures from India.
Glass bead mixtures from India often appear to be dusty. This dusty grey material is called 'kiln wash' or 'slip' and is used to help the bead release from the wire upon which it was formed. Simply rinse your beads off in the sink or wipe off with a piece of cloth to remove the slip.
Shipwreck Beads offers a bounty of beautiful beads including freshwater pearls, gemstone beads, glass beads, mood beads, bone beads, ceramic beads, and metal beads! We proudly offer extensive selections of top designer brands including Swarovski Crystal Beads, Miyuki Delica Seed Beads, and TierraCast pewter.
