Pumpkins with Spider Lampwork Beads - 13mm
Great Halloween Beads
These were great beads, just the right size for earrings!

Although some spiders' legs not complete, one must remember that lampwork glass beads are individually created, and each is unique. Flaws can happen in any creative process, so I rate the quality high, for in my opinion, they are superb works of art. All of the beads were used for Halloween earrings, and most sold at a recent craft fair. I would purchase these beads again.

spiders on pumpkins
This is one of the first items I purchased from OT. The shipment arrived quickly. The beads were packaged in bubble wrap, and there was no breakage. When I started to work on a necklace, I became disappointed, I know that lampwork beads vary from one another, but many of these bead were downright sloppy. I had ten spiders that looked nice; the rest had disconnected legs, or only six legs, or blobs for eyes (some were not on the body just floating near by) and one misshapen pumpkin. I don't know what kind of QC (Quality assurance) the manufacturer has, but these beads would not passed inspection. Anyway I finished the necklace using seven good beads, and used the rest in a cluster design that hid the imperfections. I still like the beads, I just wish more were usable beads.

Don't get this unless you like paying for about 4 usable beads
I understand handmade items differ, but the batch I got was just plain shoddy work. Spiders were not identifiable as spiders if I didn't know they were spiders, most looked like crabs missing legs. Legs were not connected; some eyes were not even on the spider. And only one sided, which I should have figured. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. The four I saved aren't even as good as the picture showing them on the website.

Ok but expect to eliminate some
These are cute but still had to go through them to see which ones were good enough to use. Many didn't have the spiders entirely 'complete' (missing pieces of legs mainly).

These beads are very cute. More importantly, they were packaged well. No damage on any of the beads which is typical wtih glass beads.
