This color combo makes for terrific beaded beads. I highly recommend this gorgeous mix.
These colors are the bright greens shifting to the colors of Fall leaves. I will use them to add highlights to my work; unexpected little pops of color among rich neutral materials.

This mix is not as bright or as red as it appears in the picture; the rust is more dominant. However, it's still a really gorgeous mix. Gold-lustered terra cotta seed beads go superlatively well with this mix.
Bead Embroidery with mixes
They came in 8 gram bags. When I opened one bag up, I didn't think this many beads to work with. I'm use to getting tubes of 25 grams at my LBS and wasn't sure if this would be a good deal as the bags sold for $1.50 each online. But I decided to give it a try. So I used the Scottie cab that I made from my vintage button that was crumbling & has now gone to the big Button Heaven in the sky. I wanted to try to do at least one bracelet. I opened another of the 8 gram bag & began to bead. I was surprised at how far those 8 grams went. I completed the whole bracelet with 3 bags, and use a little from the 4th bag. Then I decided to go ahead & make a pair of matching earrings with the rest of the 4th bag. I was able to complete that too with a little extra left. So basically, if I purchased these beads online from Artbeads.com I would have spent a total of $6.00 plus the cost of the ear wires, cab & wool for the bracelet. I realized it really wasn't a bad deal in buying the seed bead mixes. So I recommend that you investigate in their other seed bead mixes. They are a mix too with all sizes and bugle beads. It will also give you a good idea on how to combine different colors to get a pleasing look.
