Love the color of these they go with so many other colors. Thanks Artbeads for having such a variety of crystals.
I used this in my butterfly bracelet and it was great for the accent color.
I received the roundelles for a product review at the Indiana bead society meeting. I used them to create a crown on the embroidered peacock necklace. they worked perfectly for the purpose. They are held by a silver head pin which is sewn to the ultrasuade backing.
When I received these beads at the Indiana Bead Society Meeting I knew immediately what I would do with them. I needed something to add sparkle and richness of color to cylinder bead columns and enamel rings. The color and shape were perfect to take the earrings from bland to just the right level of sparkle.
I especially like the color, as it is a dark blue without any purple overtones, a navy rather than cobalt color. I have found many uses for it with greyed blues.
The size of the rondelles was perfect for the seed bead columns, and could just as easily be used to provide a strong contrast.
