Shaped Beads: INFinity Minis and Es-o Minis

Bead of the Week: 2 Shaped Beads

There’s always excitement around the office this time of year. The bead and jewelry teams have been out and about and are just returning from a week in the sun at the annual Tucson bead and gem shows. There was so much eye candy to be had, with only a fraction of the latest and greatest fitting into my suitcase for the trip back home!

Eso Ombre bracelet by Cecil Rodriguez The BeadMaster USA booth always has exciting new shaped beads to show off, and their most popular this year seemed to be the two-hole Es-o Minis, which nestle oh so perfectly to create beautiful dimensional shapes like the flower petals in the Eso Ombre Bracelet shown here by Cecil Rodriguez.
