    Beautiful, like worn denim

    I love these beads for their rustic dark blue colors. Some have an iridescence and some are translucent, definately have an ancient relic vibe. One strand yielded a casual 5 strand bracelet. I can wear this artifact with most things, like a favorite pair of jeans.
