Bead the rainbow …
If you have “collect the whole set-itis” – you’re in trouble now.
For those of you not steeped in seedbeads – allow me to translate.
Seedbeads by the Japanese seedbead maker – Toho – are famous for their consistency of shape and colour – much more so than the Czech seedbeads – which vary in width, and can vary in colour from batch to batch.
Size 6 – 6/0 – is a largish size – also known as size “E” and as “Pony Beads.” They are large enough even for the seedbead challenged to use – and are a good “starter” bead. They also make very nice accent beads and filler beads. For instance, you can use them between larger beads that you don’t have quite enough of to make the bracelet or necklace that you had in mind, or to just add a little splash of just the right colour where you need it.
So if you are already contemplating your neat rows of seedbeads – soothed by their colours and orderliness, or if you revel in untidy piles of colour – and are looking for your next fix – voila! Plunge into the 6/0s!
Of course, if the 6/0s seem a little big for you – we have more of the Toho 8/0s as well. This Silver Lined Turquoise Opal, for instance, is just yummy! And these gold-plated Toho 8/0s – well – wouldn’t they add the perfect deluxe touch to your creation?
On the stoney and non-seedbeady side – we’ve just got a few interesting odds and bobs in. Tourmalinated Quartz – always interesting – these quartz crystals have needles of Tourmaline formed inside them. The crystals range from water clear to inky to milky. You just never know!
And this is – no – not Onyx. It’s Amethyst – but such a rich dark colour that it looks black in some lights – with flashes of purple. Hold it up to the light, and the colour is rich and deep!
