These beads are beautiful, and long lasting. The finish is great quality, and won't wear. The bead caps are small, and it would be nice if they were offered in multiple sizes. However, they are very elegant. I have used it on the bottom of lampwork flowers, and as accents in green or leafy necklaces.
I use these with 6mm cubes in between and then I put a 4mm bicone on top. Very pretty earrings .
Looks good. Style limits usefulness for my use but I would recommend it.
As others have stated and illustrated in their reviews and displays of lovely jewelry, these little caps showcase 6mm and 8mm beads very nicely. The only kudos that I can add is that they are consistent, well crafted, nicely detailed, and thick enough to hold their lovely shape over time, yet thin enough to add grace instead of a bulkiness. Light enough such that they don't overload the weight of your earrings, bracelets and necklaces, yet heavy enough to impart and hold structure in your jewelry. Tierracast (and Artbeads) provides this style is made in many lovely metal colors.
