These are better in person. I made a decoration to hang in the rearview mirror for a friend using these beads along w/ crystals & other beads. It came out pretty, however cannot upload the picture from my phone. Wish these were a little cheaper in price. Unique looking to say the least!
This is my 2nd time buying black matte toho cube beads. I love to use contrasting colors, textures and shapes in my design work. It just adds a whole new artistic dimension instead of just shiny-ness! Toho's are wonderful for sculptural pieces as they are so uniform. I have never had to cull them for being mishappen or non-uniform. When you are doing offloom seed bead work, need extreme uniformity of size, or even use them as a spacer type bead instead of metals these are awesome!
Even though their gauge inside is large, these make wonderful beads to complement other beads that you have. The quality is nice and the color is true to picture. I can see I am going to have a lot of fun with these. Big potential and versaility
These black matte cube beads are a great choice to use in a project that needs a contrast to the brilliant finishes beaders love. I wear a lot of black so I'm sure these beads will weave their way into more of my "keeper" projects.
