Swarovski Disc (#5100)

Today's bead is a swarovski disc (#5100) in vitrail. I discovered a while back that vitrail isn't actually a particular color, but a type of metallic coating. So, two interesting things in just one bead (the shape and color)!!

I wasn't sure what this shape was called, so I searched on the term "swarovski spaceship" since that is what I thought it looked like and found some sites that referenced the actual style number (#5100) and name.

I discovered this bead last week at a local bead shop in central Ohio, Byzantium. Always a fun experience, but you have to keep your blinders on a bit or else...Well, you know the story!

I thought these vitrail discs might be fun to use between those beads I found at Joann's recently, the Rainbow Silver Back Gem. I'd love to hear any other ideas you have for these, they are just adorable!

Yes, they'd definitely be perfect with the Rainbow Silver Back Gem!

It's so nice to have you doing so much bead research, saves me tons of time ;-)

Lisa, I shop at Byzantium whenever I'm on Columbus---not like that's often, but we have software from a company located there! Great store! Teri
