11/0 Seed Bead Opaque Matte Light Amethyst

$3.80
SKU: SB110472
The Opaque Light Amethyst beads have a certain delicate timelessness. Use with -0174 Opaque Amethyst for shading. Using this color next to turquoise/aqua blues (item #s ending with 5-) will draw out the purple tones.

Opaque glass does not allow any light to pass through the bead. This gives these beads a solid look that is still shiny. The matte finish mutes the shiny glass and gives these beads a softened appearance. Use matte beads next to gleaming, glittery luster or AB (aurora borealis) beads, to draw attention to the latter.

Seed beads are a very popular and time-honored option for any bead artist, whether your art is worn on the powwow trail, displayed in a gallery, or adorning a person. They are fairly uniform in shape and size. They can be used in virtually any beaded project, including applique or flat stitch, lane stitch, peyote stitch, loomwork, bead weaving, bead stringing and jewelry making. Since they are so versatile, we recommend using seed beads for beginning beaders, classes, and workshops.
