Round Beads & Gold Flowers: Matte Metal Meets Crackle Glass

Our vintage, opalescent West German crackle glass beads are super pretty, and super rare! We have a bunch right now, but once they're gone, they're gone for good. Our on-staff designer, Ashley Bunting, discovered how gorgeous these round glass beads look when paired with gold metal flowers. Lavender and gold are simply striking together, and no wonder when purple and yellow are complementary colors on the color wheel. It's just good design sense!

Ashley designed this exquisite, ornate bracelet using the rare crackle glass beads along with our center-drilled gold metal flowers. We think it's pretty cool! It's easy to mix and match any light purple beads and gold metal filigree or flowers. If you want to make Ashley's necklace, check out her tutorial on our website. The large scalloped filigree piece is sold out already, but we have plenty of other gold metal pieces to choose from, for instance, the gold matte metal flower pictured above.
