Comments:

I am on the 2nd or 3rd batch of these beads.  The batch I am on now has the same description as the batch in the picture, but it has a different stye number.  It appears to be more brightly colored than the batch in the picture, with more coppery color in it.  The latest batch came loose in a bag (instead of on strands); I'm not sure what the significance of that is.  Sadly, the wholesale price has gone up considerably, so I had to increase my price.
