Square Cubes with Round Beads

Yes, after typing that title I was VERY tempted to make a reference to the Square Pegs sitcom again. Am I really stuck in the 80's? At times, possibly, but is that a bad thing??

Okay, out of curiosity, I searched to see how many times I mentioned that 1980's sitcom here and discovered it in only two posts! Oops, the theme song lyrics are now running through my head, I better get focused :)

I just recently saw the swarovski crystal color "silk" in real life. It's nice...subtle, with a very light amber tone with maybe just a slight bit of pink or something.

In the 4x4mm size, it's more on the light earth tone side. You might have guessed that I am thinking about combining these baby cubes into the amber/brown memory wire bracelet that I will post on Saturday.

Will the square "pegs" fit in with the round beads? Stay tuned! :)

Those crystals look wonderful...can't beat the Swarovski crystals! Against other crystals there isn't any comparison!

Yes, I think round and square fit nicely together...will watch for your bracelet.

Cheers

I really like the combination of square beads with rounds and donuts, give the finished product a nice geometric look or something.
Happy crafting!
