Optical Illusion

Today's bead came as a real shock to me when I realized what was really going on here. This is a plastic bead that I thought had little plastic crystals in them. Well, hang on to your hat.... these are not little plastic crystals or rhinestones at all. I had to poke something into those sections just to make sure I wasn't seeing things and then looked at it through a magnifier!

What appears to be crystals are actually holes lined with foil that has bends in it or something that make it look like a faceted crystal. Isn't that something?

I hope you have a chance to pick some of these up. They really make a fun statement and I would love to have a big package of them!
