Rhinestone Angel Pink Ribbon Earrings Kit
Spend the money and buy the elements instead
The acrylic accent beads were shoddy looking with poorly cut ends and what looked like heat damage that made some of them look cloudy. Buy the findings, buy the charms and buy crystal accent beads -- you'd then have really classy looking earrings. Fortunately I had some crystals and worked them into the earrings. It's not a deal in this case. Look for kits that have glass beads only -- the acrylic just looks cheap. Had I used the acrylic accent beads I would have been embarrassed to give them as gifts and I wouldn't have been able to sell them at craft fairs -- and breast cancer awareness earrings are a big seller at craft fairs.

Very hard to put togeither
As cute as these earnings looked they where not easy to put together.
I bought them to make for a fund raiser for Breast Cancer Awareness,
I could not get them to look good so they are still sitting in the little bags and the fund raiser is over.

Cute, but beads are plastic
These pink ribbon earrings are cute, but just know that unlike some of the other kits we've gotten from Oriental Trading, the beads are of a rather dull plastic instead of the glass beads I was expecting. The silver beads are also of plastic. Two of the angels in our package of six earring pairs arrived without their pink stones; because the stones were not in the bags, I assume they were packed missing the stones so quality control could be improved. Because the little angels looked empty without the stone, I used a couple flat-back Swarovski crystals I had around the house, which then had me thinking about picking off the remaining pink beads and replacing them!
Another tip: count the number of links on the enclosed pieces of chain. I found anywhere between 5 and 7 links on mine; it was easy to open the links to even them up, but much easier to do it from the start instead of finding out they are lopsided after they're finished.

I like the looks of these earrings. I make them for presents for my friends.
The quality of the beads are great. They are easy to assemble, fun to work with. I just love making beaded
jewerly. I can create something out of beads just by
looking at them. How great is that.
