Nice Idea, Poor Execution
By Anon on August 16, 2018

I was excited to order these beads after seeing some Artbeads sample photos of earrings made using them, however when the Holiday hat beads arrived I was very disappointed. Maybe I got a bad strand, but the beads I received were all VERY inconsistent in size & shape. I understand that these are hand-made, so some variation is to be expected. But the beads on my strand weren't even close to each other in shape/size/appearance. There are 10 beads on a strand and I was unable to find even TWO of them that matched each other well enough to be made into a single pair of earrings. Some of them have wide tops, some have wide bases, some have narrow tops, some have narrow bases (and every possible combination of these features that you can think of). Additionally, most of them were smashed flat as though they were pinched firmly between the artist's fingers when they were made. The holly designs at the base of the hat that look so beautiful and 3D in the Artbead photos were actually mashed on my beads to the point of almost being 2-dimensional. So very sad. Maybe I got the one "misfit strand" and everyone else is delighted with theirs, or maybe in 2018 this is just what these beads look like. At the very least there is no quality control where these beads are made/strung, because in addition to being flattened the beads on my strand vary so wildly in appearance. I could've found a way to live with the flatness if they were at least similar enough to each other to use for earrings, but clearly the beads on my strand were all made by different people with different ideas about how these are supposed to look. Artbeads, please tell your supplier (a) their artists need to use a lighter touch so they don't squash the beads flat, and (b) they should consider having each strand filled with beads made by a single artist so for instance if an artist likes to make wide tops and wide bases then ALL the beads on the strand will have wide tops/bases and will at least match each other. I've attached 2 photos so you can see the flatness and size variation. I didn't remove them from packaging because I am returning them to Artbeads.

Santa Hat bead
By Petebcpa on July 2, 2014

Every year I make and give away about 100 pairs of Christmas earrings. Always looking for a new item. These looked good. They are cute, but the holly on the base of the hat is only on one side.

Holiday Hats
By elsnee on September 30, 2013

These ceramic Santa hat's were made into holiday earrings. I needed to add a white round bead to complete the look but I am sure they will be a big hit with both young and old. They were will made and for the most were all the same. A cute idea and fun to wear..

Very Very Cute!!!
By AngelsJewels on September 18, 2010

I found that with these holiday beads...the simpler the better. They don't need to be embellished, they are great on their own.
