I ordered these based on other reviews, but I wound up being somewhat disappointed in them. The colors are very pretty, but the sizes are much more varied than pictured and the top drilled holes are very inconsistant. I have several beads that I can't use because the holes don't go all the way through the bead or are so close to the top of the bead that I would worry that it would eventually break off. What I can use makes a very pretty item though.

This was lovely, and I would buy a lot more if you had these in 25mm sizes. All the bead magazines are showing the larger sizes.

The photo of these did nothing for me, but I tried them based on the other reviews. They are gorgeous and I love everything about them. These will be the beads you'll be touching all day long!

I purchased beads like this at a gem show and was unable to find them any place else until I stumbled upon them at Auntie's Beads. WOW! They are exactly what I was looking for. The colors and the quality of the beads were perfect. These beads definitely make a statement - with or without a pendant.

I just bought the last 6 strands of this...and all the reviews are right on. I bought some of this at a local beads shop last year , and made some beautiful necklaces.THey sold out as fast as I could make them! I haven't been able to find it anywhere since, until I found it here. The sale price is closer to what I had paid last year, so I bought the last 6 strands. THis makes a great statement piece. Thinking of candy and springtime....great with other beads mixed in ...

The beads are everything I expected them to be, the only little disappointment was that one green bead arrived broken.

Triple Threat: Beautiful, Interesting, Fun!
This unusual string of beads is wonderful. The color in the first strand I bought was vivid. My second purchase is just as vivid.
I love how the light plays through these beads.
I put these together with 11182, multicolor 16mm faceted agate nuggets and used micro faceted garnets as spacers. I think the result is a beautiful, unusual chunky necklace.
I have no hesitation recommending these fascinating beads.

I love, love, love these beads...I like the varied sizes of each bead, I've had more than one strand and so far I've not had any issues with the bead holes, etc., the colors are great...I've added a pendant as well as restrung and left as is...the necklace alone makes a huge statement!!! Necklaces made from these sell very quickly!!!

These stones are so beautiful.I made a unique necklace with them and I sold so fast. The woman that bought the necklace is wearing it on her wedding day. What's better than that. I love these stones and I love shopping at Auntie's beads. I will be getting a picture of her in her wedding dress with the necklace.

top drilled nugget beads
The colors are exactly as pictured-some are very pale and others are very brilliant. They vary in shape and size which is fine for my beading style, but may not be for others. They are not too heavy which is good if you use many of them to make a necklace which I plan to do.

Another great purchase!
Love the quality & the variety of colors in this strand of multicolor quartz! I just used some of the red ones in a bracelet! Added just the right amount of "pop" with my tiny turquoise green glass lentils!
