Good at first, but plating doesn't last
These bead tips were easy to use and sturdy. However, like most plated metals, the silver plating comes off with daily wear, exposing the copper/brass (wears down to a copper color, then to a brass-yellow color) underneath. If you choose to buy them, you would probably want to use it for jewelry that won't get daily use.
