Beads

Decorative beads are an elegant addition to any jewelry design. The term “Bali Beads” has been used very loosely in our industry. (See What is a Bali Bead? for more on this subject). At Nina Designs, “Bali Beads” are Sterling silver Beads made in Bali. Our Bali Silver Beads are carefully handcrafted works of art. See How Are These Bali Beads Made for a detailed explanation of this extremely intricate, skilled and time-consuming process. As you browse through our collection, keep in mind that the granulation is applied by hand, one ball at a time and the filigree placed gingerly strand by strand. Intrigued?
