I love the quality, variety, and sizes of the beads I order. I make lost of beautiful jewelry with products from OT.

an assortment is the best way to go - lots of beautiful colors to choose from
if I didn't know better, I'd swear they were Swarovski's - the way the light hits them is awesome! Although a few of the beads were hard to string with my tiny needle and had to be hand strung by the string only - but that was only four out of all those beautiful beads... I can live with that!

Very good assortment
I loved the intensity of the colors and the multiple shapes and sizes. It was a really great assortment and I will probably buy it again as soon as I'm low on beads!

Bags of 48 in emerald, periodot, topaz blue, sapphire (royal), aquamarine, amethyst, sunset (orange), topaz (amber), fuchsia, light pink, ruby (x2), garnet, clear (x2), moonstone, jet black, and AB black (irridescent). That's 864 beads, but the sizes are 2-4 mm, with no 6 mm beads at all. Still, nice colors and a good assortment, but smaller beads than advertized.

Gorgeous and economical
These arrived and I was so pleased. They are gorgeous and so economically priced. I was used to paying a lot more for some that were not nearly as nice. Now I will only buy these.

Good for low price items not for high quality work
I purchased these to determine if I could use them for jewelry making parties as well as my own work. The color is great; however the consistency of the cuts is lacking. Many of these crystal beads where not cut level at the top and/or bottom which make them sit uneven for, say, earrings, without some tweaking of wire. This was also the case if you placed the crystal between two seed beads on the wire. When examined closely, some of the crystals had fractures in them, making them unusable for me.
IMO, these would be best used for low price jewelry items, such as impulse purchases, but not for more expensive items where quality and consistency are important.

A bit disappointed
Any recommendation of this product would be qualified and depend on the intended use These beads were not as nice as I expected. Some of the larger ones were not symetrical. With some colors, notably the lighter green and orange, the 2 sizes were not the same shade - which can be o.k in some applications, but not in others. Overall I cannot complain too much for the good price, but I won't use these in my best jewelry pieces.
