Fascinating Facets!

I was first drawn to the colors of this very long strand of 8mm glass faceted beads, but I loved them even more when I got a close up look at the facets.

I'm not sure the effect comes through in the photo, but up close and in person, it's like a party of colorful disco balls!

With the holiday season fast approaching, I was thinking it would be great to pull all the reds for a project, the blues, clears, etc.

However, the more I look at this strand and feel the fun vibe of the colorful mix, I am thinking they would make a festive piece all together.

Hmm....this is the kind of brainstorming that makes my head happy! What do you think?

I think they'd look lovely kept together. It's great to have options though, isn't it.

I think the facets are called chessbroad. They're beautiful.

What fun beads! I have some like this in gold. They remind me of disco balls.

They would be a great chunky bracelet. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Beautiful! I say keep them all together, randomly (if that makes sense).
