Dear Znet- I received my bead order last week and it arrived so quickly!!--I was quite surprised. It was well packaged and the beads were incredible. When you say a strand is high grade quality it really is! I am quite particular about the beads I use to create jewelry and have to say that I am very impressed with the quality and selection you offer. The quick delivery (not at exorbitant prices) was a much added bonus!! Thanks again!
