I bought two packages of this mix and it didn't have the opal kind of look that it does in the picture. The size of the beads was smaller than shown as well. I wouldn't buy these on the web again.Other items I have purchased on this site have been fine.

Great color, but the beads got stuck in each other
The color combination of this mix is lovely but the small beads got jammed into the holes of the larger beads and I had to spend a lot of time with my bead reamer poking them out. For my taste there were too many bugles -- not a shape I use a lot. Good for inspiration, but if I had an actual project in mind I would buy the individual colors in the sizes I needed.

Fire opal seed bead mix
I have used this color combination in several pieces of jewelry. It is a mix of reds, oranges and pinks that is not eye-searing but is very effective with larger beads in similar colors.

Multi bead mixes are great
I love the Miyuki bead mixes. They give you a chance to play with a lot of different shapes and sizes in complimentary colors without having to purchase full amounts of each individual bead, which is such a deal!

Questions and Answers
Q:How many beads are in a 10 g package? How long of a strand would this make?
A: With a multi mix, it is hard to say how many beads are in a package because you get everything from size 6/0 rounds to size 15/0 rounds to bugles to cubes to drops. Depending on the size and mix of beads in a package, the number will vary. If you are wanting to make a long necklace or multi strand design, I would recommend buying 2 packages of a multi mix. In this project, for example, I had 5 strands of seed beads and used about 8 grams of a mix. Each strand was only about 4-and-1/2 inches, though, because the findings and clasp at the ends took up so much room.
