I love cool colors and make lots of pieces with the cool color spectrum. I'd been trying to find a few blue beads that stand out and don't get lost next to darker blues and purples... this sapphire blue bead fits the bill. I've been very happy adding this particular blue bead with various pieces. It stands up to the darker blues and purples and helps break up the darker colored beads.
5 Stars for quality, shipping, and customer service... Looking forward to seeing how Artbeads grows... Surf Beads / Estero Island, FL.
I combined these beads with a number of clear and light blue beads to create a beautiful spiral necklace, the beads really sparkle
