Heavenly Blue

Today's bead is from a package titled, "Bead Heaven", manufactured by Halcraft USA. There are 40 pieces in the package and the back reads: Medium blue oval faceted fire polished Czech glass beads. These special beads are each combining two molten glass colors and then hand faceted on eight sides only, leaving the finish intact on the sides where the holes are drilled. This makes a wonderful rondell effect in brilliant glass!

You don't usually see such lengthy descriptions on the back of small bead packages. These beads are very pretty and sparkly. They are the perfect shade of summery blue!!

I'd love to hear some ideas for using them. I have 3 packages and am wondering if these can be used similar to toho cube beads in a peyote stitch or some type of stringing project that resembles a peyote type stitch.

Hmm... If you have any ideas you would be willing to share, please let me know!!
