Rizo Beads

What is a RIZO?

Well... A long time ago (several months at least...) in a land far away (the Czech Republic) a handsome and charming Dagger Bead met a curvy little Drop Bead with loads of personality...and before long (and after a respectable amount of time passed between a lovely beady marriage ceremony attended by fringe beads from around the globe who witnessed the happy couple tying the knot--with Fireline, of course) the Rizo bead was born!

Actually, this innovative new shape (not quite a drop, not quite a dagger) is the brainchild of international beading sensation Sabine Lippert, and it features prominently in a number of her new designs.

All colors are currently available in 12 gram tubes, unless marked as "out of stock."  
Please call us at (201) 385-6225 or e-mail us at beads.byblanche@verizon.net to order!
