48" Throw Beads
Mardi Gras beads come in different
lengths ranging from about 30 inches to 100 inches and sometimes even more. The
48" throw beads are an especially versatile length of throw bead because
they are a little bit longer than the average length of throw bead. This added
portion of length gives the wearer room to double strand or knot the throw
beads. The 48 inch throw beads also come in many different colors, patterns and
shapes because of their length popularity.
Some of the different colors of the 48" long throw beads include the traditional purple, green and gold colors which are the traditional colors of Mardi Gras. The 48" throw beads also come in vibrant colors such as neon pink and neon orange, metallic pink, pearly white and shiny black. These beads come in different varieties of shapes beside the round spherical beads. These different beads include cube shaped beads, pyramid shaped beads, shamrocks, textured beads with ridges and even heart shaped beads. There are even more unique themed bead patterns and shapes such as card and dice. It is a great moment at a Mardi Gras parade to catch or find a rare or unique strand of throw beads such as beads with vibrant colors and unique shapes.
Mardi Gras beads are fun to wear and throw into the crowds of the Mardi Gras parades because they are light weight, so the beads can be layered. Some of the other patterns of 48" long throw beads come beaded in a pattern which makes them easier to intertwine when they are worn. These throw beads consist of a pattern of larger beads and smaller beads making them less bulky and easier to layer and twist together with other strands.
