Black Glass Teardrop

Ooh, this bead is so cool! It has a sophisticated flair to it because of the shape, but the cuts give it sort of a simplistic feel.

I've used these beads in a very simple knotted bracelet. I made headpin dangles out of 4 or 5 of them and did the same with hematite rounds. I used a thin faux black leather cording and at short intervals, knotted the dangles on jump rings. It ended up looking sort of industrial, but at closer glance, the hematite and teardrop dangles gave it a lot of sparkle in contrast.

I love hearing other ideas, so let me know what you think about these! Have a good one!
