Obvious confessions... I LOVE these beads. They are just gorgeous - with the silvery core they shimmer and if diamonds didn't exist these would be the go-to beads for earrings!! 1/2"diameter carved for extra sparkle and presence. Two sets available, four beads each.
I revisit this style every now and then, and it felt like it was time. Light and reflection filled set of 24 chunky disks with color & charm, and 10 clear spacers. All beads have 1/16" mandrel holes. This set measures 8 7/8"L as strung. It is comprised of denim, olive and a few gray beads - some of which are an overwrap on a colorless core - to allow light from within.
Very pretty and could very easily be strung much as it is for wear.
I've used some dark, dense colors and veiled them over clear cores... all with ridges to amplify sparkle and add visual interest. Set has 1/16" mandrel holes and measures 8 1/2"L
Cool carved teal bead set with a few punches of purple. I've encased each of these with a nice layer of clear and have added carving to the surface to add sparkle. 1/2"diameter with 1/16" mandrel holes. Seven 1/2" and four 3/8"diameter beads.
