I've had this big glass heart for ages but I have had so much trouble trying to find beads to go with it. If you place it next to black beads it looks brown and if you place it against brown beads it looks black. It IS black and silver lined. I promise. In the end I went for 4 types of seed bead: clear, clear silver lined, black and clear amber. The beads that the seed bead lines are threaded through came from a set of black and clear beads and again the black ones look brownish. There are three strings of seed beads all threaded through the smaller beads and through the heart and then I made three little tassels from the bottom of the heart. This necklace is for ME.
