Like the Olympics, and their motto of “Bring Home the Gold”, I too sought to Bring Home the Bling. Success!
The colors looks pretty basic, but basic gets used quite a bit, and these fill out the gaps in colors I already have. True, they are not my personal color choice (orange?) but they will be used, of that I am sure.
The baggies are 1/4 kilo, and about the size of a sandwich bag. That gives some idea of how seed beads are sold in the wholesale world. I imagine if I owned a bead shop, the supplier would have been more than happy to sell them pre-packaged in little plastic tubes, but that is unnecessary.
Then there are the daggers, drops and druks. Druk is a fancy term (Czech probably) for a simple round bead. I guess it differentiates them from seed beads, which are perhaps made differently? Not sure. Will have to research that.
I really like the chrome colored daggers. See them sitting next to the red drops? I think they will come in quite handy, when a little something unusual is called for. Maybe they’ll make their first appearance in a Mermaid bracelet. Biker Mermaid, anyone?
