Beading News - New Halo Ethereal beads
Look what came in the mail yesterday! Aren't they gorgeous? The colors are the same as the original "Halo" beads but they're opaque instead of transparent. I love the original Halo beads but their transparency is sometimes a problem because the thread can show through them. Now we've got the best of both worlds - opaque beads and a glorious glittery golden Halo finish. I'm hoping that they will come out with SuperDuos in these same colors soon.
The only place that I've seen the fire polished beads online is Simply Beads. They just had a site-wide 25% off sale last week so I bought 3mm and 4mm in four colors. The colors that I got are Halo Ethereal Shadows (blue), Halo Ethereal Cherub (pink), Halo Ethereal Regal (purple) and Halo Ethereal Heavens (aqua). The quickest way to find them on their site is to do a search for "Halo Ethereal". The search will bring up all of the fire polished beads and also some Rose Petal beads.
I just did a quick Google search and there are some Etsy shops that have them, including Haute Hobby. I also found them on a bead site called The Bead Obsession.
