This week's new arrival at ABD is huge and it's one we are particularly excited about. If you're not already beading with them, these tiny diamond-shaped treasures are called Silky Beads and they are a great way to lend your designs a unique look.
Czech glass silky beads are diamond-shaped two-hole beads that come in two different sizes - 5mm and 6mm - and 40 different colors. The hole is drilled diagonally which gives it that groovy diamond shape. Additionally, the two sides of the bead are different. One side is flat while on the other side, there is a ridge. At 0.8mm, they have a fairly large hole size, as well. We are also carrying the new table cut cross beads which you may have also heard called window cut beads. These polished and pressed glass beads are fired and specially cut so that they are flat on both sides. You can come up with some really rad designs with this new line of Czech glass beauties.
