Welcome to the Beading and Wire Wrap Design Resource Page

Welcome to Beaders and Wire Wrappers Resources page of the ISG Global Network. Below you will find special images and information to help those working in jewelry design through beading or wrapping to do basic identification of gems and minerals using basic knowledge and skill. You will not learn how to identify gemstones here, but you will learn about the most often seen gems and minerals used in beading and wire wrapping, along with what to look for and lookout for when shopping at the gem, mineral and bead shows. We encourge you to review the information and give us feedback of what additional information will be of help, and any recommendation or suggestion regarding how we can make this page of greater benefit to our beading and wire wrap jewelry designers.
