Well, I don't like writing negative reviews, but I have to say that the 2 strands I received of these beads feel and look more like metallic silver coated plastic than they do Crystal (or glass). The silver looks painted on to me and they are Soooo lightweight, I just can't see how these are crystal.
Sorry, Auntie's. This is the first item I've truly been disappointed in. :-( Not worth returning. Maybe my Granddaughter can use them in something.
