Today's bead is a white 16mm glass pearl from Blue Moon Beads. This is one of the packages I bought with my JoAnn, etc. gift card a week or so ago.
I have never used glass pearls this large, but I am not opposed to using glass pearls or any kind of bead or materials.
I enjoy the trial and error phase! I figure if I can wear something, like it, get a few positive comments and it stays together, I have a successful design, method and materials.
I think this would be cute as a single bead on a thin silver chain or the focal bead in a memory wire bracelet. This would also be so fun hanging from a long wire on earrings OR a long bracelet dangle that bangs into things and makes me laugh!
I don't know why I get a kick out of hearing a bunch of extra large dangles banging into things, but I do!
So, what do you think? Giant glass pearl bead...cute or tacky?
