Matte/satin 4mm sterling silver beads
I am not as impressed with these matte silver beads as I thought I would be. I made up a necklace with turquoise and coral and tried these beads. Hmmm, I thought the matte detracted from the other beads and dismantled the necklace. I am re-thinking how to use them. The matte silver is very subtle - I will try them perhaps with pale pearls.
And now for something a little different...
I've been working with lots of silver these days and the matte finish makes these a great contrast paired with other shiny stones or beads.
I love these beads.. they're great but the color is quite dull.. I purchased these originally believing they were going to be a shiny silver but they came out to be a dull silver color.
I do recommend for anyone creating bracelets etc. to use these .. but do be forwarned, they are a dull silver color.
All items were as expected.
