Versatile Spikey Beads

I just popped over to the Beadwright's blog, a.k.a. Nicole Campanella, to check out her book giveaway and noticed these ultra cool beads scrolling by in her Etsy shop.

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen these beads before, they are labeled "Bead Spikes Green" and the description reads:

"Here are some vibrant green spike beads in acrylic. They are awesome!!!! Perfect for light weight earrings and seed bead embellishments. These are two inches with a great stringing hole."

I'd love to hear your thoughts about these. I agree with Nicole, they would make great earrings with a little sparkliness added in. I also think they could be used in an interesting Halloweeny way! I like scariness incorporated when you least expect it...in a slightly creepy way.

Cool or creepy, either way, they caught my attention!

huh..I was thinking christmasy lol Do a bit of a fringe on a choker with some of these... mix them with some red and a bit of gold... lol

If she has light blue or white they'd make great 'icicles' :)

Aahhhh thank you for featuring me on your blog. Yes these spike beads have so many possibilities. Then in this months Marie Claire magazine there is a necklace with pink spike beads.
I like Skye's icicle approach.
You made my day thanks again.

I thought of putting peyote around the top and down a little then making them fringe on a necklace or making earring out of them. They're great!
