|These 20mm rhinestone encrusted beads are sparkle heaven|
Woweeee look at these beads! B-Bling!!! If I were a fashion designer, and my beaded ornament hooks were my clothing designs, then this would be the item that would close the show. My 'ball gown' - if you will - of the beaded ornament hangers.
|Flanked with crystal rondelles for even more bling|
Truly stunning beads. Huge 20mm resin beads that are encrusted with acrylic rhinestones that shine and reflect the light! I adore them. I bought them all the minute I saw them. The hole size is 4mm so it is a little dicey for the 6/0 seed beads so I have used clear crystal faceted rondelles. What's a little more sparkle, it fits right in.
Up the hanging portion of the beaded ornament hook I've continued the bling with shiny Terra silver 10/0 seed beads (clear crystal in other versions) interspersed with silver lined crystal 8/0 seed beads. The Terra beads are meant to not tarnish like other silver beads will - they are certainly nice and smooth to work with.
|A better sense of the colours on a darker background|
Because the crystal rhinestones reflect every colour of the rainbow, the camera in this bright light, despite my best efforts, is showing them a little darker than they would appear on the tree. This photo on a blue blanket gives you a better idea.
Unless you live a lifestyle like a rockstar or Warren Buffet you probably wouldn't have these ALL over your Christmas tree, but they will be part of my 'designer series'. A few of these here and there on the special ornaments is sure to look amazing.
