"Am captivated by this new Swarovski bead. Simple but charming and very versatile. A pleasure to hold. They are a catalyst for play. Slightly less sparkly than the faceted beads, they compliment both casual and "dressier" designs. Frankly I am still playing with possibilities: a necklace with all globe beads, or, combining them with more rustic gemstones, or . . . . I need to order more!"
