Pros: Versatile beads that work well for a variety of beading projects.
Cons: Not made in USA, but are good quality beads.
Summary: These red, white and blue pony beads work well for a variety of patriotic jewelry and craft projects.
Whether working alone or in groups, jewelry making can be a fun and rewarding passtime. I enjoy crafting, and it can be a wonderful way to spend time with my granddaughters. Among my craft supplies is my bead collection, and we have made many things using an assortment of Darice Pony Beads.
I recently wrote a review of the Darice Neon Multi-Colored Pony Beads, and today I will be reviewing the Patriotic Mix of Red, White and Blue Beads. Much like the neon beads, these are the 9mm by 6mm size, which are a good size for little hands to work with. These work well for various jewelry projects such as necklaces and bracelets, and can also be used for a variety of other craft projects as well. Some of the other projects we have made using this type of bead include candle holders, clothing accents, hair decorations, ornaments, and a bead curtain. These are very versatile beads that are great for both children and adults.
There are 720 beads in this package so you will probably have enough for several patriotic craft projects. These are also available in larger bags though, which would be ideal for group projects such as girl scouts or classroom uses where you will be using a large amount of the red, white and blue beads. I bought several bags of different colors so I could make a larger variety of projects with more color combinations so the smaller bags were perfect for me.
These beads are not recommended for children under the age of 3 because they could be a choking hazard for younger children. They are recommended for adults and children who are 6 years old or over. I have used them with younger children, but always in a well supervised environment.
These are great for anyone who loves crafting, and work well for a large variety of projects. I wish that they were made in the USA, but even so, they are a good quality bead that can be used in a variety of ways. I recommend these to crafters of all ages.
