I picked these adorable green chevron beads from a giant bowl of chevrons at the local bead store. I thought the color was sweet and cheerful!
I was thinking they would make adorable earrings with a huge crystal hanging from them OR they would make an adorable focal bead if they were right angle-woven together with a bunch of crystals to form a large beaded bead to act as a conversation piece.
Perfect for this time of year when it's spring one day, fall the next and summer two days later! Love it and so glad it's not winter anymore!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on fun ways to use these and the many other very colorful, happy chevron beads. I learned a little about these beads recently, so here's a bit about how they are usually made:
Chevron beads are composed of a number of consecutive layers of colored glass. The core is formed from a molten ball of glass that was melted in a furnace and air is blown into the center to create the opening. The ball of glass is then placed into a star shaped mold with various number of points and then additional layers are added until formed into a cane. Wow, that's amazing!
