Beads / Beaded necklace

Where can I find one that's neither Pandora or the hippy beads-on-a-string of my youth? I'd like a chunky versatile short-length necklace for everyday wear, maybe with semi-precious beads.

I'm really struggling to even find anything to link to to demonstrate what I mean! I like Monica Vinader jewellery but don't want anything as delicate.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I wear this sort of thing to work almost everyday to jazz up my plainish work wardrobe. I can usually find something nice in fatface, white stuff and indepedndant gift shops. If I like the range of gifts on sale I will often like th jewellary on offer. Places with lots of gift shops are a good place to look.

Ok. First choose what colours/stone you want. That'll refine your search quite a bit.

I'm having a turquoise and moonstone kind of day


ignore the boho tag- it's not. But it's naice

Or should we be thinking plainer again?

Should it be round beads or shaped beads or 'natural' cut beads (ie:irregular.)

I've found nice beaded necklaces at Boots and Morrisons for workwear.

Look on Folksy or Etsy?

EAST. Their clothes are frumpy and grannyish but they are fab for chunky jewellery smile

my favourite online shop for that sort of necklace is Caradiaz.
