Mad About Beads – Style & Fashion Report

This post is sponsored by eBay.

There is no question that beads are more popular than even this year. I am seeing people wearing stacks, single strands, various colors, monochromatic and more. There are even more Pandora bead choices than ever before.

I have curated a great collection of beads that I would love to have and that I think make great starter bracelets. You find a variety of colors, materials and sizes of bracelets. Some are brand name and others are made from real gem stones.

Rather than spending a ton of money, my collection is the perfect place to start and see what beads you like, what goes with what you wear and what feels good while wearing it. I have several bead bracelets that I purchased but never wear because they just don’t feel good or look that great while wearing them.

Here are a few of my favorites (son I have already purchased from eBay) that you can add to your own personal collections or use to get started on a collection of your very own:

Mad About Beads Collage

1. Tiffany & Co Sterling Silver Bead Bracelet

Be still my heart. This one is a stunner. Beautiful, timeless silver bracelet from the always timeless Tiffany & Co. What more could a girl want?

2. Gray Labradorite Bead Bracelet

These healing stones are large and very pretty. You can see how each bead is different yet they all look amazing together.

3. Beaded Bohemian Bracelet Stack

This is the stack to start with if you have an interest in beads. You get several bracelets with one auction and you cannot beat the price.

4. Hedgehog Charm Bead for Pandora

Hedgehog. I just like to say it. This totally adorable hedgehog bead for Pandora needs to be on my bracelet right now. It is cute, different and a little funny. I just love it.

5. Dragonfly Charm Bead for Pandora

The dragonfly charm bead for Pandora bracelets is a great choice for a gift or just to treat yourself. It has a mosaic tile like look that I love and for sterling silver, the price is more than fair.

6. Wooden Beads for Pandora Bracelets

These brown, wooden beads are the perfect addition when trying to fill up your Pandora bracelet. I love how natural the beads look. Keep one and give one away or wear them both.

7. Judith Ripka Sterling Truffle Bead Bracelet

This beautiful truffle bead bracelet is like any other I have seen. The beads are filigree and just lovely. The bracelet appears to have a little weight to it which means it will feel good when on.

8. Black Tourmaline Bracelet

This black Tourmaline bracelet is 8mm round and contains healing stones. Black goes with anything and this bracelet could easily become a wardrobe staple.

9. Natural Colorful Tiger Eye Gemstone Bracelet

These beautiful, natural tigers eye bracelets come in a variety of sizes. The colors are really nice and 

I have many great collections that you can check it out on eBay and obviously I am quite Mad About Beads. If you want to follow me while you are there, that would be great and you can see when I curate new collections.

  7. Squeeee! I LOVE the hedgehog. I’m trying to think of how I can use that alternatively rather than a bracelet – pendant? Carry him around and show him off? I Love that little guy!

  8. Norma Doiron @Savvy Biz Solutions

    Jeepers! Reminded me how many $$$ worth of beads I have stored in my craft room that I should be using up. I think I’ll get them out and make a few Christmas gifts. 🙂

  9. Helene Cohen Bludman

    My favorite is the Judith Ripka. So pretty.

  10. OHHH I love beads, they all look so very lovely. I would have a hard time choosing I would want all of them it would have to be that simple. Ebay is the place to go I guess. I will have to check it out, thanks for sharing.

  11. I like beads but never know how to group them!

  12. Brett

  13. Jazmin @ Frugality Gal

  16. I have a Pandora bracelet and my daughter has two. I would love to do a collection of beads for Pandora bracelets. Your collection is sooo pretty.

  17. My sense of style changes with my mood, so I don’t think I’d be safe around too many beads. But I do love the hand-turned wood ones and turqoise… or amber.

  18. I love beads. I used to make jewelry all the time, unfortunately I don’t have time now.

  19. I love making my own jewelry with beads, although I haven’t done it in years. Love the beads in #9!! Gorgeous!

  20. Pam

    If I created a collection on ebay I bet it would be books. I love to read. 🙂

  21. Amy Lynn Desrosiers

    I am all about stacking different colors, textures, and styles. I would totally stack a beaded bracelet, and a few colorful rubber ones.

  22. As soon as I saw the hedgehog I thought it must be the Pandora one – I have to admit to owning it myself and I love it! x

  23. I think I’d curate a cat collection. I’ve been collecting stuffed cats and other cat “stuff” for years.

  24. So beautiful! #7 is my favorite.

  25. Oh, I love number 8! I haven’t used eBay collections yet, but I could see myself starting one for jewelry, household items, and clothing for my boys.

  26. I am a huge fan of beaded jewelry…especially bracelets.

  27. Okay, even thought I don’t make jewelry or anything, I’m going to admit that I’m mad about beads! What a great eBay collection and I wouldn’t have thought to create this one!

  28. Janel

    I’m digging the bead trend!

  29. I think #9 the tiger eye bracelet is my favorite. I love to dress in neutral colors and then use my jewelry to add color to my outfits. I also like chunkier bracelets, that one would be perfect!

  30. Daisy

    How pretty! #7 is my favorite, but I love all of them. Silver is so trendy right now so that is why I picked #7. 🙂

  31. I didn’t realize tiger’s eye beads came in so many colors!
