Picture Does Not Do Them JusticeSeptember 24, 2013
I bought 5 bags of these beads when they were on sale, thinking they might make a nice square-stitched zigzagged woven cuff as a background for some embellishments. But the beads themselves are stunning! The background black is marbled with a navy shade but the foiled AB effect is a myriad of colors--turquoise, lime, purple, depending on the way the beads catch the light. I put a flower made out of simple daggers and fire-polish in the center top to make a bracelet that gets me effusive compliments whenever I wear it. Do cull though. Even TOHO leaves some odd shapes.

Used to make "bead soup" w/othersJanuary 21, 2011
I used these beads with 3 other color/finishes of 8mm Toho's w/25 at a time mixed together creating my own "bead soup" and made a 4-row peyote strap type necklace. One problem, all beads are not uniformly cut, so have to weed out the crooked sharp point end beads and don't use them at all.
