HAND-PICKED FOR YOU
I was very impressed with the customer service and fast shipping. Great turnaround, even during the pandemic, but I can only give a three-star review, as I didn't get to use the product. The beads were too long for my waist and had metal clasps on the end, so I couldn't adjust them. When I tried to cut the clasps off and adjust them, the beads came off the strand and the whole product was rendered useless. If there is a way for people to tie and cut the strings to fit, that would be a better option (imo) than the clasps. So disappointed I didn't get to use the product.
They say good things come to those who wait. It took a little over a month to get my beads, however it was well worth the wait. They fit perfectly and look great. The owner was in communication with me and very kind and apologetic for the delay which also made the wait worth it. I will most definitely be ordering again when these become too big! 😉
