For a beach-inspired aesthetic, you simply can’t go wrong with shell beads! Shell beads and mother-of-pearl beads are what we do best here at Soft Flex. Read on to learn more about the many different types of shell beads and mother-of-pearl beads that we have in stock:
If perfect pearly iridescence is what you are looking to achieve with your jewelry, mother-of-pearl beads will help you to get there. They promise a timeless look, and are just as stunning as real pearls. In fact, you’d struggle to tell the difference. Most mother-of-pearl beads are made out of the nacre coating of the inner shell of certain mollusks.
Abalone Shell Beads
The abalone is a mollusk that resides in warmer oceans and boasts a shallow, ear-shaped shell. It is this shell that most abalone shell beads are made from. These types of shell beads are a firm favorite among jewelry makers, and they can also be used as button and rings.
Oyster Shell Beads
Oyster shell beads are some of the most popular types of shell beads for jewelry making. Oyster shell beads not only come in a variety of different colors, but they are also extremely durable when compared to many other types of shell beads.
Heishi Shell Beads
Heishi shell beads are small hand-made beads that have been crafted using pieces of shell. These shell pieces are drilled and ground into beads and then strung into necklaces. These beads generally have a more streamlined look than untouched shell beads, making them a great choice for formal jewelry pieces.
