I could not be happier with these tiny brass beads. Lots of little irregularities and some seams are noticeable. The hole size is large compared to the size of the bead so can be used with a variety of stringing material. This is suddenly my go-to bead and I am using them in everything! Will be ordering lots more. I am thrilled with my entire purchase from this seller and the order experience. I had some questions which were all answered very quickly and everything is exactly as pictured/described. I will definitely be ordering from this seller again!
