6mm- Luster Opaque Amethyst
Czech Fire Polish Glass Beads
How more “vintage” can you get? This bead looks like you just took a peek in your Grandmother Ethel’s jewelry box! Some of the facets look rose and some go towards mauve, but the results are special. Pair it with a delicate chain in antique brass like Baby Steps and you can create an extraordinary beaded rope that will look like it came right out of the Roaring Twenties. Just use 20 Gauge Vintage Bronze Wire and follow the Skill Builder: How to Make Rosary Loops. Hole size is generous and will fit two passes of Regular C-Lon. When you’re shopping for a thread match, we recommend Orchid in Fine Weight C-Lon or Regular C-Lon.
Sold on 6 inch strands of 25 beads.
Note: New advances in bead manufacturing has made adhering coatings to glass beads more viable. A glaze is applied at very high heat which seals the colors to the glass. If care is taken, these beads will last for years. However, we still recommend you keep these beads away from lotions, perfumes, and water.
