Blue Star Beads - 11mm
Great Little Beads
These were the perfect addition to my patriotic jewelry. I added some crystals and they looked great. The color was very nice.

Pretty Blue Stars
I have a 'thing' for glass beads and these blue stars are VERY pretty! They are a beautiful shade of something like a cobalt blue and are clear and shiny with a nice finish. You can see through to the bead hole, which runs all the way through. If there was a negative, I wish they would sell the same thing in a bigger size. I also ordered the clear star beads, which were equally nice. I may order the red stars which would complete the red, white, and blue!

Used for 4th of July beading projects
I used these and the red and clear stars to make some beaded jewelry.

Wasn't happy with these
Allthough these were better than the red stars, they still weren't very good quality. Most were useable, but a few were broken and didn't look much like stars at all.

Color was good, drill holes a little rough
The blue color on these beads was very nice. They were some beads that had slightly rought or broken tips but overall quality was OK.

These looked like good beads to use for patriotic earrings but most of them were defective. The drilled hole was cracked and rough on most of them. I'd have to try and find a couple of decent ones from the batch but I still would not be happy with the quality. You get what you pay for.
I also ordered the white and red stars and they had the same problem.

These beads were all perfect when I received them. They are only slightly lighter than the photo.

This last lot was different, Stars had a more deeper blue before.

Did they shrink?
I purchased blue stars from here in the past and assumed these were the same size as those. Yes, I know about assuming! As it turns out, these are a fraction of the size of the previous ones. However, they are good quality, consistent color, and look nice. I should have paid much more attention to the size. They would have been a far better bargain had they been the larger ones, but still very reasonable.
