Really lush color, price, swift shipping. Consistent shape really helps with my designs.
superduo;s metallic amythest
just the right bead to finish my project
These beads are a bit different to work with, but once you get the hang of putting them together, they are a great deal of fun to work with and produce a beautiful pattern. Paired with a few other types of beads and stitches I produced a beautiful 'collar' type necklace with a lacy edge. Hopefully, a piece I will be able to add to my collection and sell quickly. I plan to work another similar item in a different color. In the two packages required for my project, I only found ONE bead whose holes were not drilled completely through.
An adventure in beading.
As you can kind of see in the photo of these beads, the "lustre" finish on them makes them look less amethyst colored (in my opinion). In person I feel the beads look too brown and I plan to return them. Their quality looks the same as other SuperDuos, I just don't like the color now that I can see it in person.
