This may become my go-to color when designing accessories. I used the Oxblood druks on a large barrette along with 3mm Bronze druks DRUKS-BRZ3 and Gold-Lustered Violet TOHO Seed Beads TBRD11-205 and it looks fantastic! The deep red is very rich and regal.
These beads are a true, vibrant oxblood color. They are not that dull and disappointing muddy red-brown that some oxbloods can be. The color can vary a bit from bead to bead because of the subtle swirls of lighter and darker shades of oxblood. The swirling makes these really unique and eyecatching. They are also very versatile little beads. I have paired them with gunmetal, bronze, gold and antque silver metals. The description says they can vary in size a bit, but I have always found them to be extremely consistant in size and shape. I will definitely be purchasing more of these. They are a must-have for my autumnal designs. =)
Thank you for all your good works. FYI, I am using these beads to make Rosary's for The Living Rosary Ministry. I appreciate your free shipping & special sale offers too. Holly
Truly oxblood--great with both light and dark contrasting colors. Unique.
