New Arrivals -Sterling Silver: As we approach the end of the year and we have just about spent up I’m thinking of the aftermath. All year I have wanted to start my first Sterling Silver collection but as this is one of two businesses I have set up in the last 15 months my time has been torn between the needs of the two. I can report so far so good both Start-up’s (they are in effect still babies) are thriving and I have reached the point I have been aiming for all year, the balance between working for the two. Finding this has meant I have forgone getting the Sterling Silver collection ready for Christmas, but it also means Vie Beads starts the new year with a shiny new collection and skill set as well as a better sense of direction.
To give you all a sneak peak on what’s to launch in the shop on New years Eve I have attached some images for you to muse through.
My favourite thing about this collection other than the fact it’s purely custom and exclusive, is that it’s so versatile. It looks great as casual pieces and as dress pieces. Each necklace lends itself to being layered up and having Semi precious stones as the color focus. These are then set between tiny light catching Swarovski Crystals keeping it authentic Bohemian in feel with a classy City Chic edge. Each necklace has a simple handmade hook fastening and comes with an extender piece so they can also be worn as delicate wrap bracelets.
True to our nature this is a very limited collection, there will only be 5 pieces to start making them a perfect unique and thoughtful gift.

Semi precious stone meaning:
Dyed Howlite (Turquoise) – Howlite Gemstone meaning. Howlite is white with grey veining. It is often dyed blue or green to resemble turquoise, or red to resemble coral. It is a super-calming stone and many people use it to relieve stress of all kinds. It makes an excellent antidote to insomnia due to an overactive mind.
Aventurine (Green) – Green Aventurine is a comforter and heart healer, used to clear and activate the Heart Chakra for general well-being and emotional calm. It is also a powerful protector of the Heart Chakra, providing a shield to block entry from those who would “tap-in” and use the energy of another.
Carnelian (orange) – Carnelian is an agate class of chalcedony that is a stone of creativity, individuality and courage. Like all agates, it has protection energies. It can aid memory, including recall of past lives. It can assist one in finding the right mate. It is also a stone of protection in general and from anger, jealousy and fear.
Amethyst (purple) – Amethyst Gemstone meaning. Crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or mauve is called amethyst, a stone traditionally worn to guard against drunkenness and to instill a sober mind. The word amethyst comes from the Greek meaning “without drunkenness” and amethyst is believed to protect one from poison.
Swarovski Crystal – Swarovski Crystals are not actually crystals in the sense of natural stones. They are finest lead crystal glass made by Swarovski in Austria. Thus they have the energies of glass as well as color energies related to their color. They also bring positive energy, hope, joy, good luck, and diffuse negative energy.
