This bead will be fun to add into my designs
It is much more beautiful in life - the glowing gold and deep read provide a very rich appearance. Each bead is like a tiny doom ring and this shape creates an interesting dimension in string. I'm not sure yet what will I create with this beads but I love them and order more - maybe for a multi string necklace and bracelet.
These Magatama beads are great to finish off the edging of a seed bead design and the Gold-Lustered African Sunset color is stunning!
The color is more like African Sunset than the pic
I purchased these because they were on sale. The picture looks a bit brown. They are really a reddish brown - but not rust, with a beautiful gold luster.
It reminds me of a reddish brown solid with a hint of gold.
If you are a seed beader, even if they don't work for your current project, they belong in a nice stash.
