Window beads or copper framed glass beads are made in the Czech Republic. They are fun to use in jewelry designs because they are not like other beads.

Joanne made a simple illusion necklace with two of these beside a large copper coloured bead. She used tinier bronze coloured seed beads as spacers. No crimps were necessary as this designer just wanted one focal group. As you can see, the total bronze look flatters her existing jewelry and her wardrobe preferences.

This is a good example of successful mixing of artisan jewelry with store-bought. The result? An individual style and statement for Joanne.
