Not so Good
I purchased these wine stoppers to use as gifts and when I first received them I was very happy with them. As I started to place beads on them, the metal finish was coming off. Also the topper would not screw onto the metal bar so all the beads would fall off. One of them was fine, but the other was not good and unusable.

I orderd these to be used in a project that would be sold. The first set I received was scratched, with black marks showing. OT was great (as always) in quickly sending a replacement set. However they were in worse shape than the original. So many scratches in the silver base of the stopper, it was more black than silver. Could not use for items to be sold. Found them on another site for lower cost, received them very quickly and each is individually wrapped and boxed - beautiful pieces!

Top of two wine stoppers had to be glued to stay on.

I bought 3 sets of these and I can't use one. All the silver on each wine stopper is scratched up and have little black dots all over them, one of the charm loops broke off. Not happy at all, save your money unless you are just buying them for yourself and you dont care what they look like.

Cute idea, but not good quality
I thought I'd use these for holiday gifts this year and bought one set to test quality. Thank goodness I only bought one set. The wine stoppers are a great idea, but both came to me very tarnished. I can't give a gift that looks like that. I was hoping for better quality. Now I will have to look elsewhere.

Well let me just say, I ordered 2sets (4total) to make for my wine loving friends who like my bead work. Let me start by saying 3 out of the 4 were not usable at all. striped threads and would not hold beads. The finish was tarnished and looked horible. This is a great concept and terrific idea. Could be real cute, however I will look elsewhere.

Disappointed-stripped threads and ruined finish
I was very disappointed with the quality of these stoppers. I ordered 4 sets (8 stoppers total) and 4 of them were not usable. They are threaded in two places: where the shaft meets the stopper and where the heads screw onto the shaft. On many of these stoppers the threads are stripped out, sometimes at the head end and sometimes at the stopper end. Called and Oriental trading replaced them but had the same problem with some of these too. Ended up mixing and matching pieces until I got 8 usable stoppers and 4 non usable ones. And the worst part? The silver finish on the stoppers is cheap.....on EVERY single one of the 12 stoppers I received the finish was pitted and worn away in areas so that the black metal underneath showed through. If you're making these for yourself maybe you can forgive how they look but I wouldn't give these as gifts. I don't think that these are worth $4 apiece.
