Size/shape:
A mixture of shapes and sizes ranging from about 6mm to 11mm.  The mix includes bicones, shells, bevelled ovals, pinched ovals and tablet-shaped beads.
Colors/description:
Mostly blue beads with a green picasso coating, although the pinched ovals have a brown picasso coating.
Hole size:
1mm (estimated).
Defects: A small percentage of beads have pits.  I am already selling these beads at a low markup, so I didn't take anything additional off because of the pits.  Also, the picasso coating looks a little sloppy to me (although that's the nature of picasso coatings).
How photographed: At the window in natural daylight.
Comments: I have to be honest, I think I made a mistake when I purchased these beads.  They were 20% off, but I didn't notice that even with 20% off, they were very expensive.  In order to keep the price somewhat reasonable, I am taking a smaller markup than usual (but the price is still pretty high).  Also, I have seen more sophisticated picasso coatings than these beads have.  Even so, I still think they are pretty nice.  It's just that at this price, they should be nicer.

Important:  Without realizing it, I received two different batches of beads, the one pictured (which has underlying beads that appear to be all white and blue) and a batch of beads that includes dark red beads with a green picasso coating.  I have run out of the original batch, and I am now selling the lot that includes dark-red beads.  Because of the time and effort involved, I am not going to take a new picture.
