Seashell Bracelet Craft Kit
I used these with the peridot and black glass beads to make bracelets for my girls. They are wonderful. I also made them for the moms and grandmothers in place of flowers.

Very Cute But Hard To String
I bought these as a craft for my daughters 5th luau birthday party. I must say, I had the same experience as others in the feedback. Some of the beads are very difficult to string, but there are plenty of beads to still have a nice bracelet. I would recommend these for a older girls (per the age 8 recommendation). Our 5 year old guests quickly lost patience and interest, but the mom's enjoyed the fellowship while we finished all of their bracelets. Perfect and fun for 8 and older kids. If you have Pre-K's, I would rethink it.

These were used as a craft at my daughters 8th birthday party. It was a perfect compliment for her flamingo luau theme. All the girls loved them! Great quality, easy to assemble. Only had a few shells that the holes were not lined up correctly, however there were extra shells for that purpose. Very cute. Would definitely recommend.

pretty in the end
THey come individually packed with instructions so that was great. There seems to be only 1 direction in which the shells can be strung, so for little girls this was frustrating and needed much adult assist. tying the knot and trying to hide its unsightliness was tricky as well. i'm prob not crafty enough to make this work optimally. so if you aren't super crafty, would beware. prob best for ages 10ish.

Not as good as pictured
I was very disappointed in this time. Not only could an 8-year-old do it, I couldn't! The stretch cord frayed. Not all of the shells were drilled clean through (maybe 7 or 8 out of the allotted 11 were usable). I sent it back.

was good for price made 24 braclets
The shell braclets were simple to put together the only thing
that was a little flustering was the holes in some of the shells
didn't line up so had to poke with a push pin to wiggle the
elastic through. But they are great was what i expected and I'm
putting these as shell wreaths for candle glass holders .

Seashell Bracklet craft Kit
The shells on quite a few of them were not cut straight.
Hard to impossible to get the thread through.

a bit tricky
I would love to meet the 6 year olds that put these together! I could only string about half of the shells on the elastic string. The shells were beautiful! I will use jewelry wire and clasps on the rest and very much like them, but am very glad I didn't buy these as a craft for children. I love them as ankle bracelets - I would have never thought of that. Thanks to you, reviewers.

We ordered these for our Luau at our Assisted Living community. They were a big hit. The biggest complaint was that they were for kids' wrists and most of the adults would have liked more shells for theirs. These were a fun addition to our event.

Not all holes worked
The shells are very nice. Enough color and size variation to make bracelet look nice. But some of the holes in the shells didn't work to thread the cord.
