Vintage Beads

I prefer to use vintage beads or a combination of vintage and new beads for my malas and meditation beads because of the satiny, soft polish of vintage beads and the energy they carry - they simply feel different and alive in your hand!  I particularly like to work with vintage turquoise, carnelian, trade beads and "dzi" beads made from agate.  I have a wonderful collection to draw from for custom work.
