Quality, Unique, Color, Versatile, Ease of Use"These beads are really lovely. The colors are a bit richer than they appear on screen. Though this is a simple image, it's beautifully painted. The bead is quite light weight, but it's still substantial and well made. It's got a high gloss finish that I love. It adds another dimension to the bead in my opinion. And there's just the slightest hint of AB to the finish. I love it. I got these beads for consideration as the centerpiece on some shoes I'm beading, but they're so lovely I think I'm going to use them for earrings instead. You could use these in so many different ways."
