It's really hard to find a glass bead that looks like natural stone, but this sure does come close! I love working with these. I made a Rosary using these beads for a friend to give to her husband, and they both thought these were natural stone, until I told them they were glass beads. Beautiful!
Disappointed the color isn't same as picture & what I was looking for
For me this beads are rather green then turquoise, but pretty and I like them. I'm planning to use them in a nature design. I think will look great with the Satin Hamilton Gold plated Shell Chain, as stationary element with other gold tone charms.
I've bought several of these to mix with other Czech glass and stone. They provide a casual, earthy fee to my designs. People ask what kind of stone they are, and are amazed when I tell them they are glass.
