(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, introduces dynamic new Dione large-hole faceted glass beads. Commonly known as add-a-beads for popular mix-and-match bracelets and necklaces, this designer favorite is named for Dione, pronounced dee-OH-nee, the mythological mother of Aphrodite. According to Greek mythology, the prophetic Titan goddess Dione and Greek god Zeus were mother and father to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Much like Dione, who brought desirable beauty into the world, the sparkling large-hole glass rondelles bring exquisite appeal to jewelry designs.
Gorgeous Dione glass beads feature 32 sparkling machine-cut facets and many are designed with grommet centers of either silver- or gold-plated brass. The stunning rondelles are offered in a wide assortment of colors including jewel tones and iridescent AB coatings. Dione large-hole beads slide easily onto chain, cord and ribbon and can be easily moved from one piece of jewelry to another.
Large center holes in the rondelle beads accommodate chain and cord up to 4mm in width. Beads without grommets can accommodate chain and cord up to 4.5mm in width. Stock up on eye-catching Dione large-hole beads in anticipation of the busy holiday season and be prepared for the add-a-bead phenomenon.
