I ordered these tubes to make bracelets, but the arc was to wide. However they are perfect for spacers in necklaces! Since the tubes are sterling, I don't have to worry about corrosion with time. Now I'm going to order more.
I had originally purchased a smaller version of these and thought I had gotten the wrong size... as it turns out these were too big for the project.
When planning a project with tube beads, remember to calculate in millimeters, the way these are measured.
These are really great beads for a big project, perhaps a long necklace that needs some spacers. The look and feel is too great for a bracelet, and too strong for earrings. Though the size may be a challenge the weight is fine, and they are very sturdy, for a tube.
