Comments:

I almost returned these beads when I discovered that the underside of the beads isn't meant to be shown.  That means that you need to design your jewelry pieces so that the top of the bead is always showing.  The underside of the beads has a bump in the glass where the hole is, and it doesn't look very good.  However, I'm sure that all my skilled customers will find a way to keep the topside up.

Important:  In early July, 2011, I made a change.  I purchased more of the beads that have an AB coating in order to increase the proportion of those beads in the mix.  (I concluded that those were the beads that my customers liked the best, but my customers were getting only about 3 of them per lot.)  However, since last purchasing the beads, the supplier's price had more than double.  Consequently, when I factured in the price of the new beads, I had to raise the price of each lot from $2.60 to $3.00.  That's not an unreasonable price for such large beads.
