I remember buying the topaz rondelles because they looked like gold to me - I knew they would be gorgeous combined with gold seed beads. Today, I combined them with gold czech glass beads:
It looks like a very sparkly gold chain when worn, about 24 inches in length. It will be hard to let this one go, but I have enough topaz beads to make a couple more.
Anyway, the reason I deliberately misplaced the beads was that it was hard to use them when I remembered how much they cost. Now that I have conveniently forgotten, I can enjoy them.
