Miyuki seed beads are always a pleasure to work with and these are no exception. They're uniform in size, thickness & roundness, unlike some other manufacturers, and there are very few "duds" in a package. The color is a little more subtle than it appears in the listing photo; it's a very pretty shade that I find to be versatile (able to use with many different colors). I purchased them to use as an accent bead in a specific design but I've found myself using them for many other projects since then. Recommended without hesitation! By the way, all of the other beads used for the DiamonDuo star ornament shown, designed by artist and pattern author Deb Roberti, are available at Artbeads, too.
Very nice, I was expecting a darker purple, but I can always use these.
