Spring Glass Bead Assortment
Overall, I am happy with the purchase
Pay attention to the fact that "assortment may vary". I didn't. But I wasn't really disappointed because I got some cute beads that I liked better than in the picture.
Like others said before me, there were a huge amount of bees in proportion to the rest of the beads. The bees I received were different than the ones pictured. I think they are cuter than the ones pictured.

Sad, sad beads
As much as I wanted to love this collection, i was terribly disappointed!! It looked like last years (and the year before) leftover beads they didn't know what to do with so they decided to call it an assortment and sell it in lump. If they were cute and usable I wouldn't have even minded but they weren't, I didn't even know what some of the shapes were, I think one was a lobster on a rock, I'm just not sure. What I am sure about tho is I've never needed a lobster on a rock bead!! Leftover, go figure!! The other thing that bothered me, and you need to know this, is even if I could have found a use for a lobster on a rock bead, is that the holes weren't usable on some of the beads; the holes were shut, nothing could pass through them, useless, wasted, uninspected (is that a word??), probably returned. Oh wait, I DO have a good use for this collection....a gag gift (poor soul!!). Don't buy this product, the price is crazy high for the sadness you receive, it looks nothing like the picture and if you need lots of lobsters on rocks feel free to email me, Ill give you mine (but remember they don't have usable holes)!!!

These little critters are so cute. These will make a really nice bracelet.

I loved these beads, they are so fun and bright.
I am going to order more of these beads because they will be so fun for the kids to make many different items.

Not the greatest
Was so looking forward to getting at least one of each bead, was hoping to score some cute dragonflies & butterflies...instead I got a whole bunch of Bee beads, and a few snakes and turtles. Not impressed, and will not buy another set again.

Not the mix that is shown!
As stated by other purchasers of this product - WARNING! You should read the reviews by previous purchasers. I did not and was surprised!
Picture shows all sorts of cute beads, I got some of the cute ones but did not get any snake that coil ¿¿¿ no snails no caterpillars, oh and the bees I got are huge not like the cute ones in the picture. Same with the butterflies. I also got plain (no critter) beads not shown. So that took up qty for the cute ones. Did get more then the 146 but nothing I can use. So¿¿¿¿¿¿ not the mix that is pictured.
Kinda disappointed un like this company to be so far off.

Not as described
I received more beads than advertised. I did not receive all lampwork beads but had silver findings (which I don't mind). I received a lot of bees. I had some butterflies but these were clear butterflies with very little color in them. I did receive a couple lampwork rondelles, sea creatures but none of the other bugs displayed in the picture. I wanted to have some of the other bugs. I am very disappointed in this assortment.

I read the assortment may very and was OK with that. But, a good portion of what I got was metal daisies (not lampwork), no snails, frogs, ladybugs, etc., and the butterflies I recieved were not lampwork. I don't mind an assortment but, if the description reads "lampwork", I expect all of it to be lampwork. However, the ocean life beads are very cute, but I would have ordered something different had I know I would get so little of what was pictured.

not like picture or what we received before
I had ordered this before and, like last time, received a disproportionate amount of large bees (my least favorite). Also this time we received fewer "spring critters" and a lot of sea creatures (octopus, crab, fish, sea horse). I happen to like these but since I had ordered those separately, would have liked to get more critters.
