Today's bead is just under one inch square which I thought would make a fun bracelet focal bead. I just need to find the perfect bead to place on the inside. The hole is drilled down the center of this square. I usually like to place crystals inside bead frames like this, but it is so large, I want to try something different.
A large gemstone round in browns and other earth tones would stand out nicely inside this bead. If there is room for multiple strands of beading wire to be run through the focal bead, it would be fun to twist 3 strands of small rounds in light earthy colors for the band.
Okay, now I'm reverting back to wanting to use a large crystal...maybe even a large cube inside the cutout. A 10mm swarovski cube in clear with a 2x ab finish would be cool. However, I'm not sure if the 2xab is made in a cube....I better check that out!
