For hot looks and bold style, use this strand of 8x10mm blackstone faceted teardrop beads. These fun drop-shaped beads are all cast in a solid black color across their faceted surface, resulting in a glossy shine. With their top side-drilled holes, these beads look like tiny raindrops on a strand and make cool focals for a necklace. Blackstone can be a number of different gemstones, such as jasper, but black stones are said to intensify the powers of the underlying stone. Use these beads to complement a dramatic look or to break up bright color patterns in a design.
