Silvertone Beadable Photo Holder Set
Easy to make, great gift
These beaded photo holders were easy to assemble. They came in good condition. I had no problem finding beads at my local story with large enough holes to fit the wire. In just a short time my 84 year old mother had six gifts for her red hat friends. I think they are darling and will make some myslef for hostess gifts.

I've had a couple problems with the crystal cubes being damaged/chipped upon arrival, but OTC has immediately replaced them without any hassle. Great for use as picture, business card, or recipe holders.

I bought several sets of these and spray painted the stems black, but didn't do any thing else to them. I used them for my future daughter-in-laws shower on every table with different pictures of my her and my son. I also used them at my son's "Honey Do" Shower by each of the slow cookers with the name of the dish in it. The guest thought it was a nice idea for both. It definitely made it easy not having to say what each dish was over and over.

Don't Waste Your Money
This is nothing like the image. The wire is poorly bent, inconsistent, and a very odd gauge. They arrived tarnished, like others have commented on. The tarnish I could overlook if there was some consistency to the shape. Overall they are MUCH smaller than the image or the dimensions lead you to believe. The gauge wire used is too big for standard beads, too small for large hole beads. All of the glue used had to be dug and cut out, and the stoppers re-set with hot glue to even make these useable. A very poor quality product, at an unreasonable price.

Good idea, poor quality
I ordered these kits to make as gifts. Unfortunately, at least half of the twelve photo holders arrived tarnished. Also, they come with no instructions or explanation that you have to hot glue the rubber stopper into the base or the holder will wobble. I managed to make the product work, but, overall, its deficiencies were disappointing.

Both shipments of this item came tarnished&chipped.

I am disappointed with this product. The chrome photo holders were tarnished when I received them. One of the three glass bases was damaged. I wanted to use beads I currently have; but, the holder needs a specific size (mine were either too small or too large).

i really like these, but you need to really use hot glue to secure them once they are done. Also, the base can be fragile and break. They are very unique ! That is why I like them so much. You can personalize them with fun beads.

I also expected twice as many beadable photo holders. A call to customer service took care of that and due to the catalog misprint the rest were shipped out. However, all photo holders in each shipment were tarnished so know there will be some work involved in removing the tarnish. They are very nice when completed.

I bought these for my daughter's birthday and when I received them, I only received three as well. I was told that there had been a mistake and that it should be only three. Once I explained that on the website that it stated makes 6, Customer Service quickly sent me the additional ones along with complimentary 2010 glasses. Very nice and the kids loved adding the beads. I have noticed the website has been updated since. Not sure if I would have purchased if there was only three though.
