Holly Beaded Bracelet Kit
I bought this kit to make a bracelet for myself. I had a hard time inserting the pins in the red beads and broke quite a few of the beads. When I realized that the pins were too thick to use with the beads, I used my own headpins and had no problem. I called Customer Service and they sent me a new kit. I didn't use the pins supplied with the kit, and everything came out great. The finished product is beautiful!

Looks great when finished.
My kids and I made this (I needed to make the berries as my 8 yr. old kids couldn't ). They came out very nice. Nice enough to give more sophisticated ladies. I didn't have any trouble with the holes or anything.

lovely bracelet in a more challenging project.
This kit arrived complete and as promised.. The skill level is a little more advanced than the simple stringing I had in earlier projects, but was a satisfying result. The bracelet will be a great to wear during the holidays.

Great product and good price. Perfect for Christmas giving.

Not very cost effective!
I am barely able to make one bracelet out of this whole kit! The little red beads kept breaking and 14 of the survivors have holes too small to thread on the pin.

Problem with red beads
I wish I had read the other reviews first--then I would have been prepared. The red beads would either:
1. not fit on the headpins
2. were not drilled through
3. broke when I tried to slide them down the pin
If you have a problem with a kit, customer service is wonderful about replacing or refunding your purchase, but you might want to consider using your own red beads or head pins for this project.

Loved the design but disappointed that some red beads were missing so I had to improvise with other beads in my collection. Also, some beads were not drilled through.

This is a terrific buy for the money with the exception of the red beads. More than half of the red beads do not have the whole drilled through the entire bead and when you go to insert the pin head the bead breaks in half. I had to go out and purchase red beads to finish the project.
