The translucent beauty of this bead is amazing!! It starts with a core of gorgeous, stunning, HOT tropical translucent Orange.....to which I applied strands of pure silver. It reacted with the orange and created sharp black lines accented by tiny pearls of silver.....a lovely effect! I then added three petal blossooms of Soft, Flowing Orchid; the contrast of the colors is wonderful!! Deeply encased in crystal clear for fabulous sparkle and shine, this Hot Beauty measures 13mm hole to hole and 21mm tall.
