These beads are so cute. All I needed was to add some onyx beads and I was able to make a necklace, bracelet and set of earrings very easily - using just one strand of these beads. Don't miss out, strands like this are usually so much more expensive - and you just cannot go wrong with black and white beads. And of course, the quality of the beads are Grade A in my book. Buy a strand and you will know just what a great deal they are!!!
