I bought these vintage Lucite leaf beads a while ago at a bead show, thinking they'd make good focal beads. I've been trying to use them, but no filigree ever looked good wrapped around them. They are too irregularly shaped! Then, on the Vintaj website, in their idea gallery, they used the same bead (in purple) in a necklace. So, I have made 2 necklaces attaching the bead to the front of the filigree. The pink necklace also incorporates other vintage Lucite beads.
Get thee to an independent bookstore.
