Most of these are the showy beads...large, hunky, ethnic beads. I have boxes with beads in them too...usually smaller bead strands. I needed some smaller black beads so I went to my boxes and found this strand.
Black cubes that were made so they fit together. They were perfect for what I was making...in fact, I liked them so much I pretty much used them up on a couple of necklaces. And now I want to cry because I don't have anymore of them. It was one of those strands that I saw in passing, picked them up for "someday" and filed them away. If only I had known I would like them so much I would have bought more. And these aren't the type that are mass produced so I haven't had any luck in finding more of them.
My photo assistant, Sophie, decided that these were going to be hers. Actually, she likes the raffia they were strung on.
