This year’s Black Friday bead is called Sense of Shimmer ($50 USD). This limited edition bead has loads of shimmer which is easy to see even in dull light. The green glass is very subtle and gives an earthy quality to the overall effect.

I absolutely love it with all the Black Onyx.

Of course, it looks really good with copper. This almost has a retro feel to it with the Feldspar Moonstone and the two Round Sunstone Beads.

The shimmer also looks fantastic with older Christmas beads, so if you have some you might want to give that a try.

I also like it with Daylight Brilliance from Black Friday of 2016. I’ve added in last year’s Black Friday bead, Snowflake Obsidian Facet Bead and a Smoky Quartz Bead.

When looking through my bead collection, I noticed the Chances Bead and thought it might work with the Sense of Shimmer beads.

Now to try it with newer beads. Here it is with the Happy New Year! Bead and in the middle, Hearts of Joy.

Lastly, here is Sense of Shimmer with the Golden Swirl Bead. I quite like this combination.

I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts about this bead. I think the price is really good and it delivers a good hit of shimmer, but the colour won’t be for everyone. I think it looks absolutely delicious.
