Defects:

I eliminate seriously defective beads before shipping.  I can't eliminate every bead which has a slight defect, so I use my judgement as to which defects are so serious that the bead can't be used.  Certainly, cracks, scratches, large pits, partially polished sides, large spots of picasso coating on the sides, and malformations are all enough for me to eliminate a bead.  But I may not eliminate a bead if it has very shallow scratches (so shallow that they're hard to see), small pits, or very small spots of picasso coating on the sides, or other small anomalies that don't ruin the overall appearance.  Translucent beads which have gotten picasso coating in the holes, so that the holes are dark, are not eliminated.  If you receive any beads with serious defects, that means that I overlooked them, and you should contact me for a pro-rated refund.

Comments:

When reposting these beads in October, 2012, I redid the picture (i.e., the beads you see in the picture are the ones you'll get).  The original beads were a darker, richer aqua, and the picasso coating around the edges was much darker.  Do I think the new beads are an improvement?  No, I prefer the stronger colors of the original batch.  However, the new beads have very flat, highly polished windows, which is a plus.  We may never see the original colors again since that manufacturer has gone out of business (according to my supplier).
