Carrier beads are versatile 2 hole beads ideal for beading around (peyote stitch with miyuki delicas works really well). However they work brilliantly just one their own too. Why not mix and match the beads to create a feature of their colours.
These glass beads measure 17mm (length) x 9mm (width) x 5mm (depth, at the thickest part). The two holes measure approx. 0.9mm and are set approx 7mm apart.
The Crystal Sliperit colour is a lovely metallic reddy purple colour.
