Ancient & Roman beads
Every authentic ancient bead is slightly different in shape or colour shade and shows different signs of wear or the passing of time (iridescence). This adds to the charm of each piece and makes every composition unique.
We cooperate with two local Dutch designers to handcraft all our special designs. This makes it possible to customize some of our existing designs (longer/shorter) or offers the possibility of creating a new design according to your personal preferences. Contact us to discuss the options.
Contemporary materials
All our beaded jewellery is restrung with contemporary professional stringing material and fasteners to make it wearable or to facilitate putting it on display. All spacer beads, hooks, fasteners, etc. are Designer Quality and nickel-free.
