Aqua Glass Beads and Aquamarine Gemstones in Handmade Jewelry

One of the most feminine stones loved by most women is the “aquamarine.” The pretty blue color goes well with any complexion or eye color. These same qualities make the Aquamarine gemstone perfect for bead jewelry making. There are shades of lightest sky-blue to deep blue of the sea. Aqua glass beads and aquamarine gemstones explode with “romance,” which makes this particular color a perfect romantic gift to someone very special. It is a gemstone for lovers especially. Aquamarine in its different shades gently caress our skies. It is divine and eternal just as marriage is suppose to be. Give your spouse a pair of aqua or aquamarine gemstone earrings for your next anniversary present to celebrate the love and romance between you.

I love making bead jewelry using the “Aqua” color of glass beads. In this article I feature a pair of dangle earrings made with aqua teardrop glass beads. They are accented by contrasting beads in texture and colors for a high impact look. I added these dangles to Carmilita’s Simplicity Collection of Handmade Dangle Earrings in my Etsy Shop.

What feelings does the aquamarine gemstones evoke within us? I say those feelings are many times sympathy, trust, harmony and close friendships. The aquamarine gemstone’s ability to evoke such an array of positive feelings makes it one of the best gemstones to share with lovers or your spouse. Legends say, “carry an aquamarine gemstone to guarantee a happy and prosperous marital union.”

Water in the seas is light aquamarine blue. Of course water is a life-giving substance. Aquamarine blue brings to us a close view of the oceans. Legends say aquamarine gemstones are a lucky stone for sailors to carry out to sea. Never go on a cruise without your aquamarine gemstone to provide you with a safe journey. Before you go out to sea immerse your aquamarine gemstone in sun-drenched water to activate its luck properties.

Consider this pair of dangle earrings for your next cruise trip. Carmen is a pair of dangle earrings made with “aqua” crystal teardrop beads.
