Snowman Beads - 3/8"
I bought these to combine with the snowman charm bracelet kits (item 48/3207) to make beaded bookmarks with the 5th graders at my kids' school. The snowman beads were super cute and a great value, and the project was a hit with the kids.

I enjoy crafts, and after seeing some of the bracelet kits I said, I could make my own with the lampwork beads available. I used these snowman heads to make my mom a bracelet and a pair of matching earrings. She loved them! I didn't find that there were any defective beads, and they are just too cute!

I bought these a couple of years ago . . . they are really inconsistent. The noses are in all different places, the black dots for the smile are uneven . . . some small, some large on the same snowman. I regret not sending them back and I wouldn't buy them again. They also have a lot of white powder (kiln wash?) in the holes so they need to be scrubbed in soapy water, rinsed and then dried.

These were very cute!
I ordered 3 pkgs. and am impressed that, out of 150, only 3 or 4 snowmen had their nose broken, Still, the appearance of the snowman with only the residual nose :) looked very cute. I am using these as part of a goodie bag for a cookie exchange.

great little beads
I just received these today and am very happy with them. The noses were intact and the smiles were all there. Each is a little different. They will be a great hit at next year's ornament making party.

Very Cute Winter Project Beads
I got these at the end of the season, I suppose and the price was really low - so even with some of the less positive reviews - I took a chance.
Very pleased with these - they are adorable dangles on bookmarks, cell phone charms and zipper pulls (I sometimes clip the nose down with wire cutters and file it down). I use a black cathedral bead as the hat and top it with a 3mm red bicone or a red seed bead - makes him look like a Russion soldier. Others, I used the pepppermint bead as the hat and topped that with a round 3mm bead. All in all, I thought they were a very good deal.

I was very dissapointed in the size of the snowman head beads. I had ordered these same beads a couple of years ago for use in a bracelet pattern from "Simply Beads" magazine listing Oriental Trading as the source. At that time the beads were at least 12mm. When I received this year's order the beads were only 8mm. That is a HUGE difference in the jewelry making world!
I will keep the small beads to avoid the hassel of returning them.
