I like the shape, size and theme of these beads but I don't like the inconsistent stamping where on some of the beads, the veining appearance is barely noticeable. Still, I will keep them in mind for future projects.
Very nice piece to use as a focal point. I used this in a strung bracelet with 6mm round semi precious beads. It was a little wonky when strung directly next to the beads, because of the way the holes are. So I used some 3mm beads to give it some distance from the the 6mm ones, and it ended up working very nicely.
Delicate and beautifully patterned beads make the most interesting drops for charm bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
