Very nice beads/ great color.
I like this color because it has a slight tint of gold, although it is silver. They made this netted bracelet of chinese crystals look really nice!
I use a lot of 11/0 gold and silver coloured beads and during the recent shortage of silver seed beads, bought 5 bags of these aluminum beads as substitutes. While they're shiny enough and look "silvery", hence two stars rather than just one, the shape is terrible.
Rather than nice curved sides or even the more cylindrical shape of some Tohos, these have a definite "waistline" around the sides. I've never seen a seed bead like this.
None of the beads pictured look like this. I'm a long time customer and purchase a lot of beads here and am very disappointed that Artbeads would ship beads like this.

You can never go wrong with Toho beads and the pricing is awesome!!!
Perfect seed beads for my work
As usual, artbeads.com comes through for me with the very competitive price for my favorite beads, plus the very prompt delivery.
