My fault, I failed to see that the tube was at any angle not straight thru the heart which leaves the heart at an unuseful angle. Brilliant color as are all Swarovski beads.
Color is as pictured. Very beautiful.
However quality of these beads are not quite good. Crack very easily, also a few arrived damaged. I think it's just this color. I ordered many other colors in this heart bead category, and this is the only one I had a problem with.
Lovely necklace centerpiece
This bead made a beautiful centerpiece for a delicate necklace. I framed it with Swarovski clear AB bicone beads in graduated sizes. It is stunning!
Very Beautiful...and Breakable!
These hearts looked well in my design, but they were *very* delicate, more so than other Swarovski beads.
