I made an invisible necklace with 7 of these beads. It is just lovely. Light weight for summer too.
This is bright red--just the color I'm looking for, and the color goes well with the color of silver and silver-plated pewter. Highly recommended!
The bead is an interesting shade of red. It is described as having a "ruby hue", but to me it is much lighter than ruby. It is bright and sparkley and does go well with some other colors. I would recommend trying this bead, but it may not be the shade that you are expecting.
I made a perfect pair of earrings to match the necklace I made
