Transparent Dark Olivine beads are a beautiful deep green color, reminiscent of red oak trees as summer winds down. This deep color is a great option for jewelry or other items where the light can shine through. Also great for leaves in floral pieces.
Transparent glass allows light to pass through the bead, liked stained glass. This makes transparent beads appear extra shiny. The beads are see-through, so the color of the stringing material can affect the appearance – transparent beads strung on black thread will look darker than the same beads on white thread.
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.
