SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS 12mm 5540 Artemis beads. These conical Art Deco-esque crystal beads have long elegant facets along their length and a bevelled hole at the larger end. Available in Crystal, Golden Shadow, Red Magma, Light Amethyst, Dark Indigo & Jet, also in a 17mm size.. The large end is 9mm across with a recess that comfortably fits a 4mm bead, the small end is 3mm and the hole size is approximately 1.3mm. These crystal beads are a modern interpretation of a spacer bead and their recessed hole allows round beads to sit snugly against them. Try using them as an end bead e.g on a lariat necklace or for unique earrings. They can also be used to make quirky items like ice cream sundaes, clowns and angels! Crystal is a clear transparent, colourless shade.
