Great color, hard to useJune 4, 2010
I was disappointed for two reasons: One, there weren't enough beads of similar diameter to use on opposite earrings and achieve some symmetry. Two, the holes in the beads are so large that they slide around on a headpin, making them shift a lot as you turn your head or lean forward.

Unexpected fun!May 24, 2010
Whenever I wear my slicers, I get MANY compliments. At first, I wasn't sure about my first order (purple) but after some "play time" and discovering all the things these little beads can do, I fell in love.
My 1 oz. order came with 36.5 beads (I say .5 because there was one half-square I didn't use in my design.) Most were round, but I did get one triangle and 2 hearts. With this one order, I was able to make a necklace, earrings, and a bracelet.
While they may be a bit on the pricey side, to me, they're worth every penny. Have patience the first time you use them, but I'm sure you'll love them quickly. Note that almost each bead is unique. I could find a set of matching beads for earrings in every slicers bag I've ordered, but please understand that they are fun in the fact that they are unique.

These were a fun set of beads to receive. They have good hole size - nothing too small and many were large, which was good for being able to use them in a soldered design. I suspect that some would be able to fit on a Pandora bracelet. Some have a transparent base while the majority have an opaque base, and the stringer designs varied with some very unique individual beads, but I was able to pick out a few pairs of beads that matched well enough for earrings. Though they are a bit on the pricey side, these are a fun indulgence and can be put to good use!
