'Slate'

Etched Lampwork Glass BeadsI know that a lot of people think of grey as being a dull and boring colour but I like it. It's not as harsh as black, it goes lovely with pastel colours such as pink, periwinkle and mint and it looks fabulous teamed with silver. I wear a lot of grey and I figure that if I do other people must so I'm sure there's a need for grey beads out there somewhere!

These 'Slate' beads have an opaque core which has been encased in transparent grey and decorated with pale grey stringerwork. They've also been etched to a soft velvety finish.

OHHHHH!!!! I LIKE! They have a warm, fuzzy feeling to them. Reminds me of the fog rolling in from Monterey Bay in California when I was stationed there.

Stylish and very swish and not at all boring. Grey and silver jewellery is very popular, it goes with so many different things. I think these will look brilliant with Black Diamond swarovski crystal.

those are great! I can just picture using them with orange or yellow beads!

It may be my monitor, but these look like sea-glass to me - wonderful with the stringerwork.
