The beads are humungous, way too big for me. Mea culpa, I should have examined the dimensions, which are provided in the Novice site. I accidentally dropped them on the floor, and one broke - the tine read bead on the bottom split in two, and the large bead fell right off. Ok, I guess I was clumsy, but the material is awfully delicate. I'll just have to write this one off as a bad purchase.
