This purple is right up our alley...not too bright but in the violet family. The brown wash has simmered the color down and left this hibiscus inviting and prepared to make a statement. Both Kate and Janice fell in love with the warmth of this Hawaiian flower design. Hole size will fit 18 and 20 gauge wire. Made in the Czech Republic. When strung, two beads will measure 1⅞ inches.
