Today's bead is a 6012 Flat crystal AB Briolette Pendant from Jolee's Jewels. The size is 15x14mm and was found at Michael's.
I was surprised that these were packaged so tightly in a form fitting plastic case which was inside an outer plastic case. Definitely reduces the risk of breakage by about 100%!
This "pendant" is meant to be strung horizontally just below the top point. It makes me want to bead a necklace, but I'd like to try something unique and use them as a component in some kind of crystal "sculpture".
I'm thinking of combining this with some other sparkly crystals wired together to form a pendant for a chain.
I was surprised at the thickness of this bead and wonder if anyone else has used these before.
