Gingerbread Man Lampwork Earring Kit
Nice, but a few problems with product...
These were nice, but one of the gingerbread face beads had a smile that was not attached well and it broke off... I tried to glue it back on with jewelry glue, but it didn't look right... Otherwise, the rest of the beads were very nice and made great earrings.
It should be noted, however, that I do not use the findings (earring hooks, head pins, etc) that come with the kit... I have found that the findings in many of these kits are tarnished and dirty.
I don't use the findings that come with kits like these, rather, I make my own findings out of Argentium Sterling Silver 21 Gauge Half Hard Jeweler's wire for a more professional look, and my customers appreciate the fact that Argentium can be worn even by those who are sensitive to jeweler's alloys...

These little gingerbread men cookies are so sweet. As the dsrk ones are a bit hard to tell what is what, you may also receive lighter brown cookies too, which are extremely cute. I recommend buying the gingerbread men cookie beads 24 count. You get more for your buck and they are on sale $4.99. See my pics of these adorable beads!

Facial details not distinct
The gingerbread facial details are very dark and indistinct, plus only on one side of the bead. While the kits were easy to assemble, the beads are dark and not very attractive. The headpins are bent-up and somewhat tarnished, however this did not present a problems in the finished product.
