I have used swarovski in the past but couldn't get the rondelles from Artbeads so I tried the Beadelle brand. Rose and Peridot, also the siam. Very disappointing. The crystals are not evenly spaced (a couple of them even had missing crystals) - the metal can be seen through them at places, they are much smaller crystals than the swarovski and the plating isn't as attractive either. I wanted 6 mm red swarovski rondelles, there is no substitute - certainly not Beadelle rondelles.
Beadelle roundelles are of very good quality and brilliance and enhance any beading work.
Love using these as snowman scarves with crystals. Perfect!
loved the beads. Hard to find elsewhere. I would like more square beads though.
