Lovely beads -- a rich and subtle color with nice bronze detailing. Really do evoke bamboo. The 7mm bronze endcaps finish them off perfectly. I only bought three of them and am using them in the center of a necklace, flanked with cream colored baroque pearls. Will order some in other colors..
I love this bead , the color is gorgeous and the bead itself reminds me of bamboo. Very exotic. I have not used this bead yet , but have already picked out other beads that will go nicely with this one.
