I was never a big "pearl person," but I love these, and now incorporate them into a lot of my pieces. The color selection is great - these light blues are perfect for the spring.
Pretty, but inconsistent holes
I made a bracelet with several colors of the Swarovski pearls. I was disappointed in the quality of the holes in the beads. Usually one side of the bead had a large hole the, but other side was small or incompletely punched. This made it difficult to thread with .7mm elastic. Luckily, we were able to punch out the smaller holes with a headpin, so it worked out in the end. Still it made the process take much longer. I'd love to see these beads produced with consistent openings.All in all, I would use these pearls again, as they are lovely.
