Rectangular Beads

By Sandy Paluzzi
   The Bead Peddler
® 

 

These faceted rectangular beads are anything but shy.  Flanked by rounds, they encircle the neck and sparkle from the ears.  Design by Iris Blue 222
Another blue necklace.  This one is done in vintage lucite and metal.  I love these beads which Musette Made has used to great advantage.

Morgan 52 creates a bold design with these new multicolored turquoise beads.   This necklace would do a good job of filling in those lower necklines we're seeing on women's clothing this year.

Here we have a timeless classic created by Marla Faye Creations .  The silver spacers really pop in this necklace and add interest to the ever popular lapis beads.
Another great eye catchine piece meant to fill in necklines.  Here Kiras Creations brings her design up to date by using a mix of geometric shapes.
Magpie Collections turns the rectangles upside down.  This creative sideways use of the beads make her simple wooden necklace a standout.
Rectangles seem to be made for use in a long necklace.  Baca Cara Jewelry shows off her great sense of color in this earthtone piece.
This necklace by Early Bird Creations also has great use of color.  Made of acrylic, it is both bold and light weight. 
Thousand Hills Designs uses rectangular stations to add interest to the necklace.  The gold tones in the metal spacers pick up the golden flecks in the bronzite.
Not only is this necklace by Meteor great looking, it is also eco friendly.  The artist used recycled rectangular beads from a broken belt.  A judicious use of copper makes this a fun fashion piece which I would wear all summer long.
By using different colors of the same agate beads, Every Day Elegant has made a very interesting, bracelet which could be worn with just about any color outfit.
Bella Donna 78 brings us this ultra feminine bracelet.  The flower shaped spacers echo the floral pattern in the beads to create a unified look.
Rectangles abound in this bracelet.  Empty Nest Egg wove rectangular seed bead tubes to join the shell  beads.
Teardrops are not usually used as spacers.  However, their length works well with the width and heft of the rectangular beads.  Design by  S A Kateilier .
A large rectangular bead is perfect as the centerpiece in a bracelet.  This design by River Pebble would feel as good on the wrist as it would look.
Different metals are very trendy right now.  I just love the way the oxidized brass filigree centerpiece works with the transparent purple faceted rectangles in this bracelet by  Poetica
These earrings by Scottie Designs shows you can keep it simple and still make it interesting.  The beads themselves have so much going on that they easily stand alone.  Dangling the beads from the corner instead of the center makes them even more interesting.
Carolyn Reche Designs adds interest to simple red beads by wrapping one wire around them.
Mostly 5 and Under uses a copper bead cap to separate the yellow beads in this pair of earrings.  Using headpins and earwires the same color as the bead cap presents a unified, polished look.

 

Yet another pair of copper earrings.  Here, the metal forms a rectangular frame for the  beads.  The Very Corner takes advantage of the copper headpins by using transparent beads in green shades that work well with  the patina look of the copper.
These earrings by  Paula Stone Buckner have great proportion.  The length of the focal bead is well balanced by the chain.
Petite Simplicity shows us that rectangles can also be dainty.  This pair of earrings can be worn from the office to dinner.  The light blue color is very denim friendly. 
To me, these earrings by The Apple are just plain fun.  They could really add zing to jeans and a t-shirt.   I could also see them looking great on a dance floor as the rectangles move with your body.
It is so refreshing to see artists add different metals to their repertroire.   The fabulous raku rectangles bring a funky drama to these earrings designed by  Whoop
You'll reach for these earrings whenever you're in the mood for classics.  These earrings by  Mythic Classie can be dressed up or down.
Our last entry is by The Pebble Collection .  This artist has used a rectangular frame to add structure and drama to a long row of plain round beads.  The effect is anything but plain.
