3mm biconesAugust 12, 2014
I wanted to make Jill Wiseman's Flirtation Bracelet from her book "Jill Wiseman's Beautiful Beaded Ropes", but I wanted to change the colors to match a necklace I previously made. I originally got the 3mm Swarovski Bi-cones in a multi color packet. Wouldn't you know it...no Amethyst in the packet. I had to hunt for 3mm bicones INDIVIDUALLY and Artbeads had them. They matched perfectly and I now have a set with earrings I designed myself...YEAH!! Artbeads.

I knew this before I purchased these, but if you've never seen Swarovski Amethyst crystals before the picture above isn't really the colour you're going to get. (Of course, monitors differ). Amethyst is solidly on the red end of the purple spectrum. If you're looking for a bluer purple try Tanzanite, or Purple Velvet is a good purple purple. These wee little guys are beautiful, and fit best on 22g wire. I managed to get a couple on 20g headpins, but that was iffy.
