I have bought a lot of these beads--I keep re-ordering them because they're so great. The color is good, and they are so light that they add almost no weight to earrings, and in Amethyst they give a big splash of color.
I've also spent a lot of time on-line looking at similar beads, this is the lowest price I have found. Anything I found which cost less looked cheap and like plastic (and isn't that what resin really is?) Will keep ordering these fabulous beads.
I used these and two other flowers (different styles and colors) to make a bracelet with a garden theme, and it looks great! I can see using these in a variety of colors -- like miniature bouquets for any season.
These little flowers are so much fun to use. I will buy more of these. You only need a very few of these to really set of a project. I recently did a vase with these at the top and WOW they really made the piece pop. I highly recommend any serious beader to pick a batch of these!
I can see these being useful in bead embroidery.
