Tigers! This is an evenly-size-matched set of tiger pattern beads. Lots of design possibilities with this set of 8 beads — earrings, necklace, bracelet or a combination of these. Also included in this set is a bonus 9th bead that didn’t make the first cut but definitely a ‘tiger’ and matches in size.
Making these beads is a multi-step process. I create the striped twisties and them mix in some fine silver with ivory glass for added stripey effect. The base of each bead is black, and the entire bead is heavily encased in clear and topaz for a tigery effect.
These beads have a 3/32″ (~3mm) hole – and look great worn together or a few at a time on a simple chain or cord.
