Hearts-A-Plenty Glass Bead & Charm Assortment
Lots of variety
This is quite a nice selection for the price. Most of the silver charms are really adorable, though I'm not sure what I'll do with a dozen that say "made with love". One set of beads - the large white and red swirled ones - was a bead short and the color is more orange than red (they don't go with the other reds in the assortment) but they're pretty cute on their own. The itty-bitty red glass hearts are really sweet. All in all, I'll get a lot of use out of this purchase.

Overall a good value
I ordered this to use as embellishments on my daughter¿¿¿s wedding shower favors. My first impression before ordering, was that even though the price was rather high, you get a LOT of pieces for the money, and hopefully they¿¿¿d be of excellent quality. BTW, I saw nothing that indicated the pieces would be wrapped separately; that was fine, I just had no prior notice of it. I contacted OTC right away re. the broken/bent items, and they are supposed to be sending me replacements in time for this party, we shall see.

The picture showed mainly red and silver. The charms I got were lots of orange and green, very little red. My wedding colors aren't green and orange, so I'll be sending them back.

This was a great assortment! I would definately order again! Everything was wrapped up separate..nothing broken and all just beautiful. Good deal for price!

Exactly as Expected
I don't see how people can be disappointed in the mix - OTC tells you what you're getting after you put it in the shopping cart! There are 4 bead packets and 2 charm packets in this assortment. I liked what I got and I would order it again.

Very good value
The beads I received were very pretty, none were broken, and all the ones in the picture were in my set. The littlest ones were wrapped in tiny bubble wrap pieces - I almost missed them so be careful! I buy a lot of beads - these were a great value.

Eh, so so
I was disappointed in the mix. Too many charms and no little beads. I was looking to have enough to make the necklace on the cover of the catalog with similar beads and there were not enough even close to work with. All the beads were big and two different sets of charms that I have no idea what I am going to do with....

Although it wasn't exactly what was in the picture, it had a good variety and they were really cute beads. All were glass, lampwork or good quality metal charms. I am thrilled with them!

Not so good
I received quite a few misshapen beads, not broken, but poorly made, to the point that I could not use about half a dozen of the heart beads. Whoever is glassblowing these hearts needs some work on how to make a heart shape.

not a bad deal
I purchased this mix to use for a beading project because I needed both glass beads and metal charms. The beads I received did vary slightly from the picture, so I was slightly disappointed about that but was able to make them work for me. Only got one broken bead in the mix. I would have liked to see more metal charms and ended up having to order additional quantities separate from the mix but this really was a good deal and I have plenty of beads left to use for upcoming Valentines Day projects.
