Better Than Expected

The beads I purchased were available for a fraction of the price they’re sold in stores. I could not be happier with my purchase, and will definitely reorder from The Bead Chest. Not only does the quality of my purchase exceed my expectations, but they arrived promptly. Very satisfied!
