Woodcut of winged greyhound

Shown below are the various colors of
gemstone beads available. Please keep in mind that these are all natural
materials (except where marked) and the color, pattern and intensity
will vary between beads. No two are marked exactly alike.

Note--11-2014 I have even more beads than this now.
But I've been concentrating more on metal work than beads for the past few years so I don't have photographs of every kind of stone I have in stock.
