I have taken large silver plated noodle beads or curved tube beads and wrapped them with beautiful variegated silk threads. The noodle beads are larger than most you see here on Etsy or in craft stores. They are 54mm long, and have a 4mm hold opening and they are a little bit heavier. In other words, a very high quality bead.
I've then sealed the thread with a sealant to protect the colors and the fibers. These are available as individual beads for 4.00 each, or buy the set of four altogether for 14.00. These would make a beautiful focal presentation on a pendant using just one, or in a bracelet, using multiples, OR---use one curved tube bead per bracelet for a stacking set, one on top of the other. There are many ways to use these beautiful beads, I'm sure... for an EXAMPLE of a pendant made by me, available in my shop, see here:
The colors are gorgeous...hand dyed variegated colors of silk thread/cord-- (my color choice names). Because they are variegated, as you wind the silk around the bead, the colors will change in gradation from bead to bead, so yours may look SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT in the way the colors change on the bead. The colors are, from top to bottom:
1) sea green--
2) I've got the blues
3) southwest sunset--reds and pinks
4) aurora borealis--a purple variegated
Just specify in the comment box which color you would like if purchasing one, or just trust that whatever you order will come in one or more of these beautiful colors. Colors are in limited quantities. Thank you for stopping by to have a look today....
