5.0 out of 5 stars Great bubble mailers do the job, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They are bubble mailers. They mail stuff. With bubble wrap attached. This is not a rocket science review, guys: they're perfectly satisfactory. I've mailed glass, fragile wire-wrapped jewelry, candy, perfume samples, lotion samples, tea, tiny dinosaurs, and all sorts of stuff in them. Paypal half-sheet mailing labels fit perfectly onto them.

They do the job! The only thing I would suggest is to put some packing tape over and across the top (where the flap goes) right in the middle. Yeah, it'll make it harder to open, but that's the only part of the envelope that is just paper. I'm always worried it'll get torn prematurely, so I feel a bit of reinforcement is indicated. YMMV

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied with these 5x7 organza bags: well made and lovely, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I can't tell you how much I love these organza bags. Even the "ugly" colors are pretty! I was sent a reasonable assortment of maybe 10 of 10 colors. None of the strings have broken, and they're a nice size to fit a postcard and many other tchotchkes into . Very please with these and will definitely want to order more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely necklaces, great price, not so great smell, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are lovely and I like them a lot. The down side is that they have a very strong musty sort of odor: like something that has been sitting in a foldded up Army GP Medium tent for several months. I've tried a few things to get rid of the odor: Febreeze, sunlight (be careful since they can bleach if you leave them in the sun too long), etc, and the odor seems to have reduced a little. Probably a matter of how they're stored.

Taking off one star for the smell. Sorry, guys, but it's very strong. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Artistic Wire is one of my favorites next to actual Sterling Silver and Gold-filled, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What can I say? I love Artistic Wire products! This is exactly what I wanted and it's lovely. The only downside to these is that if you're not extremely careful, you can damage the outside coating, and that does tend to decrease the shine. Other than that, it's wire, it's lovely, definitely fun to work with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little 5ml empty eye dropper bottles: I used them for samples of bath oils, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not sure what all the questions Amazon has given me about "is it easy to apply" and "how often does the product need to be applied," because these are EMPTY eye dropper bottles. I bought them to give out bath oil samples. They're a nice small size, and the squeezability makes it helpful to squeeze the bath oil out. I'm a bit concerned that they might leak in shipping, but I filled one with water and stored upside down for a few days: no leaks that I could tell. Make sure you put the dropper assembly in there very tight, and make the lid as tight as possible. It still might be advisable to put some thread tape on the threads that the top screws into before shipping, but as far as I know, I haven't had leakage problems from these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bails, pretty and easy to use, but plating/color rubs off easily, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'd give five stars for the price and look, but I feel I need to deduct one star for how easily the plating/color comes off. I wore one pendant during the day for a week, and by the end of that time, I was seeing a copper color through the silver where it had sort of run through. Honestly, I'd kind of prefer the copper color, but it seems silver and gold are all they have. Too bad. I'd buy these again for inexpensive pendants, but I am also treating them with a high-end, clear, gel-like nail polish to try to keep the finish as long as possible. Sometimes I actually carve little depressions into the backs of the pendants, e-6000 the bail in there, wait 24 hours, then cover the whole thing with epoxy resin. That seems to work out pretty decently as well. YMMV.

This is the second time I've purchased these. They're perfect for my purposes (giving them away free with pendants I make). Occasionally, one will come apart, but honestly, for the price, what do you expect? I will definitely buy these again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look lovely new, but start losing goldtone in about a week, February 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So, okay. First let me say that I do like these. When I bought these goldtone bails (pack of 200), they worked out to about six cents each. Keeping in mind that "you get what you pay for," I think these are worth the price.

Pros: They're very pretty, look lovely on my pieces, have a good shine, and seem to hold on well even to glass with e-6000 adhesive. They're plain, but the shape is aesthetically pleasing without detracting from the piece itself. The hole is large enough to fit one of those ribbon & cord necklaces or satin/leather cord necklaces easily.

Cons: The goldtone starts to noticeably rub off after about a week of wearing a pendant with one of these bails against the skin. In my case (I always test findings by wearing them myself for a week or so before selling pieces with them), the bail caused a bit of skin irritation. To my knowledge, I'm not allergic to nickel or zinc or much of anything, so I'm not sure what that's about, but thought I should mention it. Also, the goldtone can be rubbed off slightly just with one of those jeweler's cloths.

So: treat these gently and perhaps don't use them on things that will be worn touching the skin. It might be good to use these on small or inexpensive pieces rather than more elaborate work. I'm experimenting with coating them in a durable, gel-type clear nail lacquer to see if that will help keep the color longer. You might try that as well.

I'm taking off one star for the gold coating problem since I think it really should be a bit more durable (heck, anodized aluminum keeps its color for months!), but since they're so cheap, it still strikes me as a good product for less expensive pieces.
