Nice but dull
The beads work just fine but they are duller in color than they appear in the book.

Used them to make"cricket callers" for VBS. We used them on small skewers. Had to work to find skewers that had a small enough diameter. Goo dor the price.

I purchased these to make a cricket caller for VBS. The beads are nice colors. In the description they were listed as 3/8" big. I was thinking 3/8" wide, but they are 3/8" long and only 1/4" wide. They were not big enough for what I needed them for.

Not great, but OK
I purchased a set of these beads for VBS this year and used paint markers to write on them. Many of the beads did not have a clean hole and we could not string them. So a group of us had to clean out the holes using one blade of a pair of scissors. I think these were a good price for the quantity compared to Michael's crafts, but I wish I had known I was going to have to clear out the holes before I could use them. If I ever order these again, I will plan the cleaning time in advance.

Great for Hemp & jewerly
I have bought these once and I love the size of them for hemp and beading jewelry. They have large holes that make stringing them easy.
The colors are good except the blue and green are almost the same shade. You can't really tell them apart unless they are beside each other. Wish the green was more green.
Other than that these are great buy and fair for the price.
