I have used Swarovski crystal pearls in many projects. I am stunned by the poor quality of these pearls. They are lightweight. More like plastic. In fact, may be plastic.The coating pokes out at the holes. I have seen better quality from craft store pearls at half the price. The previous reviews all date from 2007. Apparently the manufacturer has drastically changed their standards. I am glad I am not a professional beader. There is no way I could charge anyone for a product made with these 'pearls'. I bought antique brass color as well. Same quality. Website would not let me review them. Hmmmmm.
Another beautiful bead from Swarovski!
Artbeads.com does it again! Awesome quality, color, and price! Best beads around come from Artbeads.com!
Swarovski pearls are stunning - perfect to work with, beautiful to wear. Bronze is an especially nice color - looks great with gold or silver. Artbeads has the best price, too!
