To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I torched, stained and lacquered these before using them and they turned out just the way I wanted. The holes in the beads are a tight fit, but I was able to get 2 pieces of 3mm cord through them. The trick is to wrap the end of each cord tightly with a piece of tape.
These are excellent for my macrame projects. My only wish is that you could pick the size of beads that come with the pack, because I have a hard tome getting my 3mm string through the hole, but it’s still do able and looks great!
