Icy Blue Sparkles!

Icy blue gorgeously faceted beads, ahhh! Very nice and refreshing!

Would you believe a coworker of mine handed me a little department store box last week which held the remains of a nice, long necklace which incorporated a pattern using these 3 beads.

They are extremely sparkly and I wanted them pretty bad. It took everything I had to say, oh no, I couldn't take those! Let me fix your necklace for you...

After some cajoling, I agreed to take them :)

I am still planning on making her something, but possibly a bracelet and earrings so I can make one of her friends a pair of earrings with them also. I am considering pairing them with glass pearls for a wintry vibe.

What do you think? Silver accents would work nicely too!

I vote for both icy pearls and silver accents with those beads! Good luck! I can't wait to see the finished project!

Teaming them with clear crystals and silver beads would make them drop dead gorgeous!

Pretty color...any of your choices would set them off nicely...I know what ever you do it will be beautiful!

They are gorgeous! Definitely silver accents and maybe white crystals to make an ice princess design.

Maybe a mix of clear crystals and pearls to really make them pop? I know whatever you come up with, they will be gorgeous!
