These beads are elegant. I used them to finish both ends of a scarf I knit out of Berroco Origami yarn with the same shades of blue and green. I had no trouble treading them onto my yarn using the method shown in the Jimmy Beans video.
I bought these beads to use with Pearl yarn in the Orchid Thief pattern by Ysolda Teague. The result was stunning, these added just a little sheen, but not too much bling. Subtle and elegant. Beads were all perfect.
