Green Leaf Beads - 20mm
Love my Leaves
I looked at all the craft stores for glass leaves like these, I wasn't even sure if they made such things. So I received an Oriental Trading Magazine and found exactly what I was looking for!
Now I can finish my Christmas presents...and I think the receivers of these gifts are going to love my neat idea!

beautiful little beads!
I used these to craft a Bible-based Advent Calendar with my homeschool group. They are perfect! They look just like they do in the picture, with a nice, big hole to work with. Mine arrived all intact, no broken pieces.

Green Leaf Beads
I'm disappointed in these. They are adorable, beautiful beads but they are terrible quality. They showed up to my house with 4 beads out of 20 broken, and multiple others with visible cracks running through them. Unfortunate, because they really are lovely and perfect for what I wanted. I just can't use them.

NOT in so many ways
The ones I really wanted were on sale and out of stock for sooooo long. These were lower quality than I expected. They are bigger than what I wanted and not on sale.

Nice, but not Great
These are very pretty beads, but I also had one arrive broken and notice also that some of the holes are far in on the leaf and others seem clogged. I've purchased other glass leaves from other companies and haven't had this issue.
The package for the leaves themselves was excellent, but everything in my box could be flopped around in shipping as there was no extra paper or bubble wrap inside the box (it was too big for all the items that shipped), which may be why the one broke. Can't explain the matter of the holes though.
All that said, I do plan on using these, so we'll see how it goes when I put a necklace or something.together.

I have made earings, used them in pendants and paired them with other beads for other uses. I was amazed at the quantity, color, etc. The only downside is that the bead holes are too far in for some projects to look quite right, and some of the holes have bits of sprue clogging them. I tried a bead reamer, but wound up breaking the bead. Well, live and learn, I guess. I may have used too much force.

Pretty, but broken
Beautiful beads, but 6 out of 24 of them were broken, so I'll have to factor that in next time I order these.

Just what I wanted except...
...about six of them were broken when they arrived. Know this is hard to prevent, but it made what I was crafting a little tricky, as I was counting on the exact number I ordered.

The hole is large enough for a small ribbon, and the color and size were accurately depicted. Three of the beads arrived broken, not totally unexpected with small glass bits in holiday shipping traffic, but plan ahead for a couple of losses if you have a specific project.
