Water Beads / Water Pearls
If you haven't worked with water pearls you really need to give them a try - you'll have lots of fun hydrating and using them in your decorative projects. When hydrated they become jelly-like balls with some amazing colors which are great for decorative accents. They are popular for floral decorations, table/vase centerpieces, home décor and a wide range of other decorative projects. Because the packages are small and easy to store, you can experiment with many different colors without the worry of bulky leftovers. Try layering colors for a trendy effect, or mix colors to create your own design.
One of the greatest thing about these water beads is that they're re-usable. Simply let them dry out and they'll return to their original tiny bead-like size. Then re-hydrate when you want to use them again.
No matter what you call them (water beads, crystal soil, water marbles, gel beads water crystals, rainbow pearls, water gels, jelly beads or water gems), these water pearls are a fun and imaginative way to add some flair to you next decorative project.
