I'm in love with this color. It worked beautifully with transparent silver lined beads and nickel components.
These beads are consistent in size and love the brushed, matte finish. They go well with antique brushed silver components.
great in a bracelet or necklace
What a wonderful color for a ladder stitch link. Artbeads has a great selection of sizes and colors for all of my seedbead needs. The price is right, too.
Go Toho! Use in place of sterling!
These beautiful, uniform and unique colored beads are useful for so many applications - just a few of my favorites:
-as bead spacers
-as the bottom bead on a head pin
-threaded onto silver embroidery thread and plaited into a delicate necklace with other strands of crocheted wire (also with Toho beads)
-as a filler to complete a necklace - so from the point of the last main bead in the design to the clasp or jump ring is not just plain wire.
I use them in all sizes for similar applications. The color is excellent to use in place of sterling beads - and they don't tarnish!!!! (However, I have heard that the color CAN wear off after years. I recently read that permanent colored Tohos are now on the market....I just hope they come in the same beautiful matte colors. In my opinion, matte colors are more classy and have a wider range of use than they extra shiny colors
