Lapis Lazuli April Fool's Day Sale

Today I am sharing my under-the-counter stash of Lapis Lazuli beads from Afghanistan. Some of you may remember the tray from a visit to the shop. Get me talking about Lapis Lazuli and I am certain to bring it out!

Our first offering is everyone’s favorite: an 18-inch knotted graduated strand of convex center-drilled disc beads. The largest bead is 48x48mm. The smallest is 24x24mm. The beads are about 8mm thick at the center. There is only one strand available. First two photos show the same strand from both sides. The third shows detail of pyrite inclusions. Regular price: $495. for the strand. We’re offering a 20% discount if you order before April Fool’s Day. Discounted price: $396.
