Hoping to add some variety to our bead selection during today's work session for Beading To Beat Autism, I ran to Michael's in search of size 6 seed beads. Alas, their Toho selection was dismal, so I decided to try a new brand, Jewelry Essentials, which came generously packaged in a variety of pretty colors.
To say I was disappointed in their quality is an understatement. These beads are poorly made and inconsistently sized, and they are going right back where they came from. Only the best are good enough for this special project!
