Beautiful Beads, great price & fast delivery
I used this bead to make a lovely Keepsake Name Bracelet.
I tried to upload a fabulous photo of the bracelet. Unfortunately, it says the file is too big. Cannot take another photo of it since the customer picked it up before Christmas! Would have loved to share it with you!
Wonderful Warm Red Crystals with Tons of Sparkle
I was looking for round crystals to use as button-clasps for a bracelet but was having trouble finding something in a Warm Red color. Too often reds have blue in them, creating a garnet or ruby red color, My beading project used red seed beads that were what I would call a Chinese Red - a red with just a touch of orange, not a lot of orange but just enough to warm it up and make it really "pop". Light Siam red was the perfect match and added just the right among of bling to my project..
I used these beads, along with Fern Green, Sunflower, Dark Indigo, Indian Red, Sapphire, Amethyst and Hematite, to make a Chakra bracelet. Chakras are energy centers within our bodies and there are certain colors used to represent each Chakra. All of the beads worked beautifully for the first bracelet I made, strung on dark leather cord. When I used braonze metallic cord and gold thread, the Amethyst was a bit too dark so I used a Violet bead I already had, and I switch out the Hematite for a Bronze colored bead I had to lighten everything up. This bracelet is so popular, I have back orders that will have to wait until I re-order everything today!
