Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sassykat Lots of one bead, only a few of another
I ordered this bracelet kit with the intention of using the beads for other projects, mostly for making watch bracelets. Because of that I am fairly pleased with this kit. Had I ordered it to make two bracelets as shown in the picture I would be very upset. There are more white beads then anything else. I loved the red and white beads that resemble peppermints. Unfortunately I only got two of those in the whole kit. The beads are of good quality, colors are vibrant and glossy. Would be nice if there was the same amount of each bead received as is pictured. If you know this ahead of time and are okay with it, then order away because you will like them.

These were fun to make with my daughter (age 9) and inspired us to buy more beads and make more bracelets for gifts. I initially thought the kit was expensive until comparing it to the cost of beads at the craft store.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tinsmom Not Bad for a fun activity, but not for daily wear.
Used this for an activity with 7-9 year old girls. Many of the beads holes were not drilled all the way through so the girls were unable to string those beads. The "cord" does not stay knotted well which resulted in many of them falling off and beads breaking.

These bracelets are OK., not what I thougt I would get when ordered. The beads you see and order are not the beads you get. There are much more white beads and less red and decorated beads.

All of the beads were intact, however on one of the box beads the hole was not all the way through, so I was unable to use the bead. I found that the stretchy wire was not really long enough to make the bracelets as shown, they were more for a child than an adult and I was making these for myself and my mom. My mom loves hers though, and they do turn out nice. This year I am going to try buying loose beads and making my own bracelets, that way I can cut the wire as long as needed. I didn't have trouble tying the wire, the knots held just fine without any glue.

The beads look great overall, but this kit does not make 2 bracelets. Didn't even make the first one look like the picture. After completeing the first bracelet I had 13 white beads and 4 red and green box beads. If you just like the look of the beads its worth the money but not if you have the bracelets in the picture in mind.
