Strong design elementSeptember 25, 2014
I recently bought this bead and found it to be unexpectedly more beautiful than I thought it would be. I combined it with small silver and larger lime-colored jade beads in a three strand bracelet. The matte finish just sets off the shiny quality of the silver and jade perfectly, while the shape and carvings on the bead make a strong design feature. I\'m buying two more strands and also the smaller variation.

Blended beautifully with PendantJanuary 12, 2012
I purchased these beads because the description was exactly what I was looking for. I needed matte black beads to create a necklace that would enhance a unique Mexican vintage pendant that had a black background with a silver 'sun god' affixed to the round metal base. The frosted look just made them more appealing! The necklace turned out beautifully using these beads as well as the capped sterling silver tube beads also purchased from Artbeads.
