HiloBeads Jewelry - Necklaces and Pendants


Hand-crafted in Hilo, Hawaii

All of these are one-of-a-kind items. I may make something similar again, but please don't ask me for two of the same, or the same in different colors.

34" double lariat necklace made with a large variety of beads

34" double lariat necklace strung on softflex containing: turquoise, amethyst, aventurine, malachite, several colors of 4mm and 3mm Swarovski crystal bicones, weleweka seeds, Royal Poinciana seeds, and several different neutral color seed beads. Unfortunately I stored this not quite right (to put it mildly) and some of the velvet of the velvet seeds got damaged (rubbed off). I am not comfortable with selling it anymore, so it's not for sale (NFS) NFS

Royal Poinciana seed spacer bar and seed bead necklace:

30" 4 strand necklace made with royal poinciana seed spacer bars and olivine color 6/0 and 11/0 Jablonex Ornela seed beads strung on 0.019" SoftFlex beading cable. The toggle clasp and cones are base metal attached with silver plated split rings. The clasp is easy to replace. $65.-

Memory wire chokers:

Chokers are made on memory wire with Job's Tears, seed beads and other glass beads in different sizes. The Job's Tears used in my jewelry grew on the Big Island of Hawai'i in the Hilo area without chemicals and are natural in color. I don't buy these but grow, pick and sort them myself. I currently have Job's Tears in brown, light color (almost white), dark striped, light striped and light with dark ends (I call these "siamese cat beads").
