I'm actually quite unsure what to call the pattern on those rectangular beads. I'm also very tempted to take apart this necklace and put those beads in my bead soup package. I picked these up in England in Canterbury when we went to visit the cathedral and wandered down some of the shops for souvenirs. I wound up finding a bead shop that the beads individually and spent about 20 or thirty pounds just on the beads. The problem I've found with these beads, however, is that I'm not sure what to call them. Are they snakeskin? Are they pixelated? What pattern are they exactly? To me, they'd always brought up images of blood-stained scales, but to others they could be chemistry symbols, or pixels, or any other number of things I have no idea about. This is another not so popular necklace, but I imagine that's because the beads I've put in to accompany my rectangular beads are just too small to look like they are in the right place.
What do you think the pattern is?
Should I just take apart my necklace, or should I leave it?
