The colorway, Marea/ Peacock Gold, is the same as we have in our Bird of Paradise Bracelet, Version II. And it simply glows!
Now bear in mind that these petal flowers do not particularly lend themselves to being strung on thread and knit or crocheted along with other beads. Those of you who are into other types of beading might enjoy using head pins with these to attach them to ear wires or the like.
For the rest of us --
What I did was I put a few 8/0 beads on a thread and then threaded through the flower and back through a drop bead (one of the 3.4mm ones) and then back down the flower again and once more through the 8/0 beads. ( All with a dental floss threader.) And I simply love how it looks. The drop bead acts as a "stop" and allows the flower to dangle -- any small bead would do as well. So adding them to a jewelry piece would be easy and truly lovely.
The Marea part of the colorway's name refers to the finish. It adds gold as highlights to the overall color. Which is Peacock. In other words, you will have beautiful flowers that are mainly purple and green and golden in hue -- and they look amazing indeed.
We are packaging these up with only nine flowers per packet. That should give you enough to decorate one or two bracelets or make a few pair of earrings or use them however your imagination takes you.
