I hope you can see how adorable these pink opally beads are! There are a lot of beads here!! The packaging reads, "14 inch strand of lampwork glass beads" by Blue Moon Beads. This is the last strand of beads I found at Big Lots the other day for $2. I'm going to do the 12-bead-magic-trick with these.
The magic trick is also called the bead bauble. It's actually a simple right angle weave that connects the first few beads with the last ones to form a circle. Let me know if you would like the instructions.
I will probably just use tiny little toho seed beads to set these sweet pink beads off. The silver lined octagon seed beads will work perfectly and add some extra bit of shine!
These beads are actually so cute, you could use just one as a focal bead on a pendant if you are looking for simplicity. Pretty!
