6-7.5mm Throw Beads
6-7.5mm Mardi Gras Throw Beads
Mardi Gras is a time of revelry and
excess, and tradition has placed bead strands in an almost symbolic state of
this celebration. The gifts exchanged during the Mardi Gras celebrations are
almost exclusively bead strands, and are exchanged between revelers for favors.
Recently Mardi Gras beads have even come to take on factional associations for
different sects among the revelers, and may be tied to particular groups or
areas of New Orleans. You are able to tell which faction a bead strand is
associated with based on the styles of beads, the colors, and the designs
embossed or engraved on the surface of the beads.
If you are going to be a part of an official Mardi Gras procession, you will need an abundance of beads to throw to the revelers, not to mention to adorn your own costume and float, and beads of a 6-7.5 mm diameter provide a solution that is both affordable and not particularly cumbersome, so you can wear dozens and dozens of strands without even noticing the weight, and they are light enough to be safe to toss out into the crowd that is clamoring for your gifts. A number of these beads are even the types coveted by revelers, which will make you especially popular during the festivities. Even if you are not a part of an official procession, these beads could still act as affordable and fashionable party favors for any Mardi-Gras themed party that you might have in the works, and will really help your guests get into the spirit of the holiday. You will be plenty thankful that you picked up these beads when your party is the toast of the town.
