Wow, these are beautiful. Turns out I will not be using them in the item I am making, but no problem. The color is perfect and will be useful in the future. Love the richness of this color.
In my opinion, this is the true maroon color. What Artbeads calls maroon is way too brown to be "true" maroon. This one is much more true to the color maroon. I combined these with some Swarovski Erinite beads to form what I call a Holly Berry bracelet for Christmas.
Great for earrings. The color of these are different but the earrings turn out great. Would order again.
I combined this with 10mm Round Pearl Peach to make a lovely necklace. Good color, rich and different.
