For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 50 beads made of Lapis Howlite
chips. Chips are the small leftovers from tumbled stones or shells,
with holes drilled through them. Mix them with other stone beads and
metallic spacers for endless possibilities.
[Please allow for natural variations in the stones.]
Tell Me More! Howlite is a strong, porous white stone that takes dye well. This Howlite version of Lapis Lazuli gives a similar look without the higher cost of real Lapis.
