In the beading world, some beads are widely divergent. This is true for drop beads, which are shaped like a teardrop.
Work drop beads in amongst round or flat beads, or string one or more colours of the tear-shaped beads to make a necklace. Bead specimens include crystal Swarovski beads that continuously reflect light through the facets, and imitation pearl beads made of acrylic material. Use one or two beads to make a pair of earrings to coordinate with a necklace.
