I use seed beads at the end of a string of beads to keep my crimp bead from disappearing into the hole of the last bead. I also string a few under a bail to keep the bail from from fraying my stringing wire. These are a perfect match for the string guard, crimp beads and clasps that I use on certain necklaces.
Used these in a paisley earring design. The color and matte finish were an awesome contrast with the sparkly accent beads I used.
The consistant size, finish, and color are what helps to makes my creations look professional.
I love these rich, matte bronze beads. Another one of my favorite neutrals. They blend beautifully with vintage base metal pieces.
