The purple velvet bead is a VERY dark color purple so if you're are planning for a purple color this is not going to be the color it looks in the picture.
It was the perfect bead for my project. It is what I call a true purple color.
Wonderfully intense color saturation! Very rich and beautiful!
Swarovski Purple Velvet Bead
I used the 8 mm purple velvet Swarovski beads in making a project from your Learning Center called Bynzatine Royalty bracelet. I love the Swarovski Crystal Beads and prefer them over glass beads any day. They just feel different as if you can feel the quality. They also add quality to any jewelry piece you may be working on. Although I do use some gemstone and glass beads, the Swarovski's are my favorite.
