Big Jeweltone Cut Glass Crystal Bead Assortment - 4mm-10mm
I love this assortment!
I love the colors and shapes of these beads! Some were an AB finish, which was unexpected but really cool anyway! I will be buying this assortment again.

NOT AT ALL WHAT WAS EXPECTED OR PICTURED
Okay, I know that you cannot rely on the pictures to be exactly what you are getting (especially when they say "items may vary"). But I bought this expecting large beads (10mm) and some AB beads, some Black AB beads like the picture. And boy, was I MAJORLY disappointed. I knew there would be some variations in beads, colors and sizes, but I figured it would remain close to what it looks like in this picture. Not the case. This looks like an entirely different collection and it by no means fits the "Big" category.
What I got was 4 to 8mm beads (NONE in the bag were 10mm) and unlike the picture that shows primarily black, golds, greens (which is why i bought it)...
My bag consisted of primarily red and blue square ones (6-8mm) they made up over 1/2 of the bag (there were also some (4mm and smaller squares in different colors). There were some 6mm black and blue faceted round beads. There were some bi-cone type AB beads in the bag all different sizes, but not enough of one color in one size and finish (some AB some regular). There were some 8mm green round faceted beads.
I thought there would be at least some black AB ones or some big (10mm) beads and there was not one.
Bottom line what was picture and what i got was NOTHING like what was described and shown. Again, I understand the ¿¿¿ some size, colors and shapes may vary¿¿¿ thing but I think most people expect when they buy a collection to get something similar (with some small variations) to the picture of course¿¿¿they don¿¿¿t expect to get a collection that is ENTIRELY different than what is described and pictured. I would never have bought this collection if they had pictured what was actually shipped. Because other than similar shapes there is not much of the collection pictured in what I got.
I am a huge buyer on OTC and I buy ALOT of stuff (almost twice a month - if not more) and I am very rarely unhappy with a product. I am very disappointed with this product. Especially for the price.
I gave the quality a three because although it is not what was pictured, what i wanted or expected, the quality is still semi-decent.

Even Better Than Expected
I bought this as a sampling of the crystal glass beads OT offers. I expected them to be good quality, with a decent mix of colors and sizes. Honestly, they exceeded my expectations. The mix of colors was very nice - I loved that several of them had an AB finish. I will definitely be puchasing more of these beads.

The beads I received were more than I expected. The beads are of good quality. It would be nice to have a few larger beads in the order. The order came within a week and I had no problems at all doing business with Oriental Trading. I intend to order more in the future from this vendor.

A very nice assortment and good quality. The thing I liked best is that you get several (8-20) beads of the each type, not just one or two of each color and shape. You will be able to make many complete projects with this mix.

Pretty for everyday
These beads are fine for everyday jewelry. I would never use them for dressier items.

I wasn't really sure what I would get when I purchased this pack of beads, but I wasn't disappointed! Very pretty selection and bright colors--kind of look like beads that cost a lot more than these did! i have already made a few things with them and I am very pleased with them. I will buy them again!
