I ordered these to add to a Budding Shawlette in Fyberspates Nef Sock Plum, and couldn't have been happier. The bead color on my MacBook monitor was the same as what I received. The beads had evenly-sized holes, easy for a beading neophyte to use. JBW sent these beads clear across the country in *three days*! I used over 200 beads and still have enough left for another project. JBW's pricing was entirely competitive with other bead sellers, and better than most. I wish JBW carried more transparent AB colors (how about 9242-Sparkle Pewter Lined Crystal?)
These beads are elegant. I used them to finish both ends of a scarf I knit out of Berroco Origami yarn with the same shades of blue and green. I had no trouble treading them onto my yarn using the method shown in the Jimmy Beans video.
