Christmas Bead Bracelet Kit
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.

Cute beads. Bought the kit to make one for myself. Liked it so much I made and gave the other one to my secret santa. I wore my bracelet on "reveal" day so we would match.

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.

I really enjoyed working with these beads, fun and easy. Makes great braclets and everyone loves them, easy to put on and fun to wear.
Great products will be buying more from Oriental Trading, Thank You for great products.

A simple Christmas bracelet
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.

Cute holiday bracelet
I think this kit was a good value--the beads were very cute and I didn't think they looked cheap. I made several to give as Christmas gifts. My one complaint is the stretch elastic--perhaps I don't know how to properly work with it, but I used a double overhand knot and even glued the knot, yet one bracelet came apart the moment I tried to stretch it. I'm a bit fearful of how the other will hold up. I may just string the beads on wire.

I got a lot of the white beads and not enough of the others, so I couldn't make the bracelets as shown. Also, broken beads. The candy cane lampwork bead set is much better, and at a better price.

A couple of beads were broken.. but very nice beads. Looks way better if you add spacers...
