Our Gemstone Blends from the Artbeads Designer Series are full of fun color contrasts and even various bead shapes. This blend mixes rich red colors with bright turquoise tones and plays with round, star-cut, and rondelle shapes. Bonnie from Dakota Stones used the blend with TierraCast components for a stylish Southwest Garden look.
