Can Look Opaque Too, In the Right BraceletAugust 3, 2013
I made a bead soup of 8/0's using these beads as the main colorway and other 8/0's like Iris Rainbow and Light Amethyst. The pattern was an easy add-and-remove ladder stitch called 'Golden Zigzags' available through Beadwork/Interweave and it came out beautifully, largely thanks to ArtBeads' nice assortment of purple/gold 8/0 delicas. These were the main 'ingredient' in my bead soup because of price. It's interesting that they are clearly translucent when you hold the bracelet up to the light but look delicately opaque on the wrist, thereby blending in with the more expensive 8's.
