Paula Radke Blue Black Beads
I have been collecting these beads for some time and finally had enough to make a necklace, bracelet and earrings. I separated the beads with 6 mm gold filled spacers on either side of 6 mm cobalt Venetian beads. The set is stunning. One word of caution: they are glass and are fragile. I have had to replace two beads which broke, once when the necklace fell on concrete, and another time when the necklace fell on itself on carpet. The last time it broke, I ordered 3 more just in case.
The Paula Radke beads are beautiful and are among my all-time favorites; I combine them with Raku beads for a great effect. Thanks, Paula and Thanks, Artbeads.
I recently used two of these gorgeous blue beads in a necklace, where they glow and sparkle along with the other, primarily black, beads. They are spectacular!
These beads are beautiful. I planned to put them in a bracelet but they are so pretty I am going to try some earrings
