Silvertone Curved Flower Tube Beads - 44mm
The quality of these beads is better then I expected. They are uniform in size, the ends match each other pretty well. The design is very pretty and the etching is clear and the blackening is even. They have a good weight and it is uniform across the piece. I had expected 44 mm to fit and cradle under the wrist, but not so. The curviture does fit against the side of the wrist. The bead measures 1.75 inches straight across tip to tip. I'll have fun with these.

Just what I was looking for
These are terrific for the price. Base metal so I will seal them and that done, I have the idea to set them facing opposite connected by a bead and make a long pair of earrings. I think that will be unique and different. They also work well as necklace beads. If the finish stays sealed I may buy more as the price is definitely right. I also like the aztec design.

I bought these to string on the wrist side of stretchy beaded bracelets - had seen the idea at a flea market - which makes the bracelet wearable at a desk or mouse pad where charm or beaded bracelets would always be banging on the desk. They had a little more curvature than I would have liked, but still work well and save beads. Straighter ones from other companies were too expensive. The bracelets don't turn around your wrist as much as other bracelets do, avoiding the problem of leaving the fastener at the top of your wrist and the pretty beads underneath.
