I'm totally in love with this color! It's a very pretty shade of gold. As the other reviewer said, the pink is hardly noticeable.
This is a very nice gold color, the pink is hardly noticeable, and it is brighter than the other gold-lustered beads that I have bought. It will be a good substitute for a real gold bead in earrings and bracelets.
I have bought TOHO beads for a long time and am familiar with the Japanese claims on their product. i have had no problems with them in the past. I make Peyote stitch rings and they are beautiful but you can't mix bead sizes or shapes on any one project as the weaving project will come out warped and unacceptable. I can't believe these are TOHO beads as I have a lot of beads on hand and they are as advertised, the same size, shape and come in an 8 gram vial. I tried weaving a ring mixing my beads and your beads and they are not true to size and shape as the Japanese claim. I also removed the beads from an 8 gram tube I have and placed beads from one of the 8 gram plastic envelopes you sent me and yours only filled it 1/2 full. I have never seen TOHO beads come in anything but one of their tubes. I don't like critiquing products or making negative claims on any ones products, but this is the second request from your company and I thought I should respond. I won't buy any more TOHO beads from Artbeads. I bought 4 vials but this review is for all 4 of them. Other products I get from Artbeads are great.
I just love the Toho's I order from Artbeads! The color is true to their online photos and easy to plan jewelry projects with them.
