These are exactly what I was looking for, but when they arrived they were packaged in small plastic bags. I was expecting a tube. It doesn't specify packaging in the listing. Had to go to HL to buy a tube to use them in my knitting. I guess the price reflects that. Lesson learned.
I have been looking glass seed beads for a while but unable to find the one I like. they were either too shining or a lot of defect I end up wasted it. I am very happy able to find TOHO beads with more affordable price.
Had to have these beads because of the color and know they will work up nicely in something I make in macrame.
Stunning when used in knitting
Love, love, LOVE these in knitting. They are easy to work with and beautiful--you can't see the sheen on the screen, they are so lovely in person.
