I have been snapping these up when they go on sale and I love them. I have used them to make earrings with crystals and even small stones. They make the earrings not as heavy as they would be. I find that they are easy to wrap a loop and even did a large rectangular agate pendant
and it worked perfectly. I don't worry about how thin they are, but if you are, try to use 3 of them and you get a great little added element on the end of the pendants.
