Butterfly Glass Beads - 20mm x 15mm
I purchased these a couple years ago. As I was ordering more today, I saw a bad review and just had to disagree.
I've made earrings with them and little girls' bracelets. They are some of my best sellers at craft fairs.
It might be nice if the colors were a bit brighter, but overall they are excellent.

The colors are just beautiful and bright. Can't wait to start making jewelry with them.

Butterfly Glass Beads
These are really cute but there is only one problem I found and that they have very little color to them. They are more clear glass with a dash of color. I was hoping they would have more color.

Very light color, what there is of it. Of a convenient size, but the amount of colors are dissappointing. The sheen was pretty good, and I had no trouble using them in earrings. Just add a crystal bead (4mm is just right) of a color that is close, or even complementary. Turned out quite nice, actually.

These are pretty, and popular among people I make jewelry for, but some are unusable since they don't have enough color, and almost look clear. Also, one broke when I was making an earring with it.

I needed some butterflies for a lanyard that a co- worker asked me to make. I found these and they looked cute so I bought them. They were nice I just wish they were bigger.

Not as colorful as I'd hoped, but I made a few bracelets with them that came out pretty nice.

Depends what you need it for
I bought these beads because I thought that they would make beautiful earrings, according to the picture. But when they arrived, the color is simply one line of paint and the beads look like plastic instead of glass. They are still suitable as pieces on a bracelet...they just do not stand on their own as earrings.

Picture better thank actual product
The picture shows well polished butterflies with vibrant (albeit pastel) colors. This is not, however, what you will receive. They are not especially smooth, not glossy and the colors are not vibrant. I would NOT recommend these!

I bought these hoping they would be the pop of color in my earring designs, but they don't have much color at all. They're just o.k. I most likely won't buy them again.
