Comments:

To be honest, these very expensive beads are a bit of a disappointment.  The supplier's picture made them look more interesting than they are.  In particular, the picasso coating isn't as nice as I've seen on other beads.  There don't seem to be as many picasso spots as the supplier's picture shows, and they don't add that much to the appearance of the beads.  The picasso spots aren't distributed very evenly on the beads.  Here is the supplier's picture for comparison:
