I use these beads for snowmen earrings, 6 & 8mm. Nice!
The discription says theses are "non-pearlized" so I expected a matte like sheen instead of the satin pearl finish but what I didn't expect was how cheap they looked. The holes are rough around the edges and though the discription says these are "crystal" beads my eyes see a bead that looks and feels like a child's poorly made plastic bead. Do not buy these beads you will be disappointed.
I really do not care for these pearls. They do not have the sheen that the regular Swarovski pearls have. They will work for casual pieces, but not for bridal jewelry or when you want something special.
I have a bride that wanted more of an ivory color to match her dress (between the white & cream). These do not work.
I was so disappointed when I received the beads. All the beads have rough edge around the hole. They are round, ivory colored, plastic beads and have nothing to do with pearl looking. Don't understand why they are under pearl category.
