These beads are from the same line as the "mod" beads from yesterday's post which, by the way, were not wood, but PLASTIC! I didn't realize it myself until I actually looked at the package this evening.
I love the earthiness of real wood beads, but am also intrigued by things with a faux wood grain. They always seem to make me smile.
Today's beads are labeled as, "Metal & Epoxy Connectors". There is definitely a retro vibe to these, but for some reason they feel like a 1980's version of 1960's mod. It must be the bright cobalt blue.
These beads are going to be very fun to use because, as connectors, they have a hole on either end. I keep thinking of using all 4 of them as one long necklace dangle for some reason. The color is very attention getting!
What do you think?
