The hand-painted, tiger-striped beads I ordered are very cheap looking and appear to be mass produced. Jewelry Supply used to offer animal-patterned beads that were extremely attractive, but this generation of them definitely does NOT measure up. Would not buy them again, and will not use the left-over beads. Had I not agreed to provide a specific piece for a fundraiser, with a very short lead time, I would have returned the tiger-themed beads and gone elsewhere for components.
