These are a nice box and nicely organized of natural wooden beads ranging in size 6 mm all the way up to 20 mm! I like that it also comes complete with 8 pieces of all natural cotton string! You get 490 pieces in this kit for $15.66 but there's a bigger kit I wish I saw that's over 900 pieces for only $1 more! Definitely go with the bigger kit! That said the beads are quality! I have seen so many crafts using these beads! I recommend spraying them with a high quality (like Rustoleum) spray paint and not a cheap paint to get maximum coverage! I have seen them as cute things with a heart at the end as a decorative piece on top of a nice tray or using smaller beads as a bookmark for a Bible! Also jewelry! Its truly up to one's imagination!
