I got these today and after a close inspection discovered that a third of the beads had to be separated. Quite few were stuck together and a lot of them "lost" some of their pearl coating during separation. I also noticed that the size isn't consistent. Some beads are larger than 4mm, some are smaller.
If this strand cost me more than a buck, I would probably return it. I like the color.
