Bulk Metallic Mardi Gras Beads
I've used OT in the past for company parties and never had an issue with any item that was ordered. Now I need them to help me with my wedding reception, and the consistency is still there. I have additional items to order, and will do so with no hesitation!

What I Expected
Ordered these beads as part of our schools 5th grade Mardi Gras themed graduation party. The beads look great and will only to be used for decorations. I Read some reviews prior to purchase and figured they were going to be too small to actually wear (and they are). I'm referring to the bead size not necklace length. Length is nice and long, but the beads are super teeny. Imagine the size of a pea, now cut it in half, and cut it in half again. That's about the bead size. We plan on using them the wrap around plain white napkins and adding a mask and also to drape over the Jester and Street Sign cardboard cutouts sold on this site as well.

Mardi Gras -- Everywhere
Brought to celebrate Fat Tuesday before we enter Lent. Everyone has a smile when we hand out the beads. These are a great price for a wonderful pile of beads.

These are exactly what they appeared to be. Good quality, bright colors. Nice length. Very happy with them, thanks!

Best deal on the web!
I threw a Mardi Gras masquerade dance for my daughters 13th birthday and these beads were a hit! Best deal on the web by far!

Opt for something else
New I realize when I buy from bulk here I'm nut getting the best products that money can buy, however these were below Oriental Trading standards in my opinion.
We ordered multiple hundreds of these for a fundraising event. I would say that many of our guests didn't get them because a high percentage of the necklaces were tangled with the others. Since we had so many, we were never able to untangle all of them.
Also, if you caught the necklace with your hand or accidentally applied any pressure to them, they would snap. I think in the course of three hours I had to replace two of mine.
I'm not bothered by the size of the beads. The picture shows pretty clearly what to expect from that point of view.

good for Mardi Gras tossing
Of the four bags of beads I bought, only five were broken. Not bad. They got a little tangled up, bu there's not much to prevent that.

beads are tiny
I've seen a lot of Mardi Gras beads, but have never seen beads this tiny.

Not the proper size for Mardi Gras beads!
Bought these for a Mardi Gras party. Wish I had read the reviews more carefully, because I would have seen the review that noted how teeny the diameter of the beads are. Not what I was looking for. Very disappointing.

served the purpose
the beads seem to be alot cheaper made. they will only be used to throw off the truck on the parade route so they will serve my purpose.
