Comments:  These beads are from one of my most expensive suppliers, and even at a sale price they were very expensive.  Thus, my high price.  I am calling them "baroque" for lack of a better word.  The supplier calls them "thru-cut baroque", but I don't know what that means.  Basically, a baroque bead is any bead with an uneven shape that doesn't look like a nugget.  Baroque beads, in my opinion, are a little fancier than nuggets, although I have seen the word applied to nuggets.
