4.0 out of 5 stars Why are there so many jewellery pieces Llisted as toys?, 16 Nov 2013

These magnetic clasps are incredibly strong and are able to.withstand such heavy beads as haematite and lapis lazuli. They were delivered quickly.and i think they are good quality and value for money.

These beads are wrongly listed as toys, which they definitely are not. They are unusual shaped very attractive beads suitable for making necklaces or especially bracelets. They were very good value, the free spacer beads making them even more so, and their design complimented the beads so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning, 16 Nov 2013
These beads catch the light so well and have s real oil on water effect that makes any piece you use them in look absolutely stunning. I have been complimented on every piece in which i have incorporated them. Will be buying lots more.

This product is listed as a 'Toy' and therefore the questions above are not really relevant.
These ribbon cords are very good value for money and come in a range of lovely colours. The fasteners were firm and withheld a pendant of quite some weight. My only criticism is that they are a couple of inches too short and therefore do not hang low enough to give the best effect. However i have rectified this by adding a piece of chain to each to give them the added length.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely bright colours, 16 Nov 2013
These tiny roses are really well moulded and are in some pretty and bright colours. We used them to make some stud earrings and to complete some Steam Punk project jewellery we were working on. Excellent value and very versatile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, 16 Nov 2013
Really good value for money and give an absolutely stunning effect, whether you use them as the main focal beads in your project, or as spacers between larger coloured or white beads. I made a beautiful necklace, bracelet and earring set for a bride using these as spacers,with white cats eye as the focal bead and some tiny daisy spacer beads to complete the project. Everyone commented how stunning they were and how well the crystals caught the light. Have already re ordered more!

3.0 out of 5 stars keeps on Growing, 16 Nov 2013
Having purchased other melt and use soaps previously, this seemed really good value. Unfortunately it didn't come with instructions and we soon found it very different fromothers we had tried. Firstly it "grows" when you try to melt it , so only use a small amount st a time. It also needed liquid adding to it as it went extremely thick and we also had to use a hand whisk to get all the lumps out. we tried adding a little of some special colouring for soap making, but found it distorted the colour and , as it is a milky soap not a clear one, the appearance was not very appealing.
Ok, maybe in more expert hands it might be ok, and it is very reasonably priced compared to others, but it was not one of our more successful projects. would be much easier to have even a photocopied instruction sheet included.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Customer Services, 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bedding which arrived was not the same as advertised and was plain instead of candy striped, but the quality of materia, so i had planned to keep it. unfortunately when i got it on the be there were marks all the way up the centre where the dye had not taken correctly, giving the appearance of large water marks.
I contacted the seller, who couldn't have been more helpful or apologetic and we sorted out the situation to our mutual satisfaction. I couldn't rate Syed at customer services highly enough. If more companies were run the way these people do, life would be much more pleasant and this is why i have awarded them 4 stars. I have certainly not been put off by my experience and would not hesitate to buy from them again.

These crystal beads are a luscious emerald green colour and pair up very well with aquamarine beads or haematite for a stunning combination of colour. I love the quality and colour of these Czech crystal beads.
