Customer Reviews for 5328 4mm Faceted Bicone Amethyst
Other beading styles or techniques: seed bead work, wire wrapping
Creation: Haven't done it yet but am about to use them in a crystal bracelet pattern.
"What is there to say about Swarovski crystals that hasn't been said a thousand times before ? They are gorgeous little beads, perfectly cut, have magnificent sparkle and give any piece of jewelry a luxurious look of sophisticated bling. I truly love the Swarovski little 4 mm bicones, and use them in many of my designs - especially in earrings. The Amethyst color is rich and vivid and looks beautiful with all the tourmaline colors."
"This bead has a very deep color and bright sparkle. I used it with the same shade in AB for a project. Together they brought so much sparkle and brightness. This is an impact color and makes a very elegant and unique piece. It can be used with so many colors to create beautiful designs."

Review 4 for 5328 4mm Faceted Bicone Amethyst
Date:January 21, 2012
Pros: slow delivery to canada
"I did write a mandatory reveiw above, but these beads have not arrived as of today January 21st. The money was taken out of my account on the 5th of Jan. When I recieve them I will write a review and send a picture , but right now the slow delivery is my biggest problem with your company. Quite frankly I recieve parcels from China quicker than I do from your company. Review and pictures to follow soon I hope."
"I got this bead to use in conjunction with the Sterling Silver Spring Spiral 4mm Bead Frame - Swarovski Amethyst. Unfortunately, the color of the little crystals embedded in the bead frame does not match the color of the bicones, even though they look much alike in the pictures on the website. The bicones are a much darker purple (almost reddish) and it's very evident when used side by side. Nevertheless, I made a necklace using both, and the end result was fantastic!"
Pros: Price, Quality, Size, Unique, Color, Versatile, Ease of Use
Other beading styles or techniques: Stringing, creating jewelry in order to raise money for cancer research
Creation: necklace and earring set for Mom
"I have always gotten top quality products from Artbeads and these beads were exactly what I expected. I love the fact that Artbeads has free shipping no matter how small the order. Their site also allows you to choose the number of beads you wish to purchase where some companies sell in string length or larger quantities. I have recommended Artbeads to countless friends, family, and strangers who ask "Where did you get that?"."
