Itty Bitty El Cubo Beaded Bead

Regarding mini beaded beads, here's the mini El Cubo, made with natural red rubies, yellow citrine quartz and lots of real gold plaited seed beads.   This beaded bead is for sale in my Etsy shop.
Here you can see it with the fringe method bead I showed in my previous post for comparison.  Yes, the bead with rubies looks huge, but photos can be deceiving.   The beaded bead on the left is 9mm with 71 beads.  In contrast the mini El Cubo is just 16mm (5/8 inches) on an edge, but it has more than twice as many beads in it, 180 to be exact, and it's still pretty small for a beaded bead.
 Remember, a gem in the hand is worth two in a photo.


  1. Wow, Gwen. That is so pretty. Those ruby beads are just gorgeous made up into your El Cubo. This is a delicious little bead!

  2. Thanks Chelsea. I love working with real gems, but I don't love the hassle having to drill out the holes first.

  3. Greetings Gwen,
    All of your works are inspiring!
