Dice-Like Lampwork Cubes

Today's beads are the cubes I mentioned in Thursday's post.

They very nicely complement that adorable lampwork heart with the raised dots and flourishy-leaf design.

Rather than just straight stringing, I was thinking it might be fun to do a right angle weave somehow using jet black bicones...hmm. Something to think about!

Another option would be a 3 strand bracelet with the heart and cubes strung in the center and a couple outer strands of bicones and other complementary beads.

I noticed that Artbeads.com posted LOTS of great heart designs on their facebook page if you are still looking for ideas!

Have a great evening!! This week's project has been moved to tomorrow's post so I could squeeze today's beads in before Valentine's Day! See you soon!

RAW with black bicones sounds good to me. There are so many ways to embellish RAW. And thoese beads make a great set, no matter what you decide to do with them.
Hope you had a happy V-Day!

Love these! They kind of give me a 50's vibe. Mix them with some red and they would be oh so cool!

I think black and white is so elegant looking. These should make some great jewelry.
