ustralia Beads has got one of the most extensive collection of sterling silver beads in Australia – this collection is not just limited to beads but also includes sterling silver findings, parts, jewellery making items and those hard to find little bits & pieces. All the sterling silver items have been imported from Indonesia and are famously knows as Bali silver beads. What is amazing about these beads is that they truly represent the most intricate artwork, reflecting the skills of the artisans who take hours to create these elegant and most exquisite beads. Carving these sterling silver beads and findings is an arduous and tedious process and once you see the detail in these beads, you come to appreciate the skills and the craftmanship of these artists.
Unfortunately the prices of sterling silver has sky rocketed in the last couple of years – I think it has tripled in last year alone. Our older stuff which we got at cheap prices is still being sold at prices from 2010 but all the new stuff bought in the last few months and all future sterling silver products will be a bit more expensive – very unfortunate but hopefully the price of silver will drop in the near future.
