I am going to make some silver and gold wire rings with these Xilion SP & GP 2-hole sapphires. The settings make them look classier - not a glued-on look. I ordered blue and gold sapphire crystals since the rings will be for a class reunion in August. The school colors are (of course!) blue and gold.
I saw these small beautiful montee and knew right away that they would look gorgeous with PAW as an embellishment to add that extra sparkle to the project. I plan to try them on earrings and if I love them, I'll make a bracelet and then a necklace. I can see in my imagination how brilliant and sparkly that necklace would look.
I have a particular pair of earrings that I originally did in garnet and they have become very popular. These are the perfect stone/setting to use because it comes in so many colors and makes production a snap. I can't tell you how many customers order these earrings. I used to cringe but, now I don't have to anymore. No more stone and separate snap setting. Yay!!
This is a bright addition to a bracelet with other beads just like it.
