These two tone earrings were designed by Barbara who hails from Wales when she came to visit her family in Canada. Perhaps the green valleys and blue skies of Wales inspired her to pick the these particular beads from Widget's Beads' collection. In addition to the colour, the choice of different beads - seed, long bicones as well as twisted nuggets - also help make Barbara's earrings uniquely her own.

Two tone glass beads are an inexpensive alternative to the truly scrumptious gemstone versions like ametrine, an affordable yellow-purple quartz or the well known watermelon tourmaline (green-red). But for a rare and expensive gemstone check out the gorgeous orange-red padparadscha, a corundum like rubies and sapphires. See all three bi-coloured gemstones here.
