Here, I used 24 karat gold plated beads.
I’ve never worked with gold beads before, but I completely
loved working with these.
 They really sparkle and stand out against the fabric and 
they were incredibly easy and smooth to stitch through. 
Each bead is uniform in size, no snagging or sharp edges.

These are Metallic Dark White Gold 24 karat plated delicas in size 8.
Once the beads are stitched to the fabric, you can string 

it up to make a necklace, or ornament anything of your choice.
