Purchased to make the ring in the tutorial advertised with this product. When I opened the package I was very disappointed with the variety of bits and pieces included. I had one entire watch insert which was too big and clunky, and lacked the tools to dismantle it. The rest of the bag was teeny tiny screws or teeny tiny cogs with pins thru them which could not be removed. Out of the entire bag there were maybe 4 to 5 pieces that were even remotely usable in the project. Not one piece resembled anything shown in the project example. I understand that each bag is going to give you a different assortment of piecesbut I would expect at least 50% to be useful. Instead I got less than 5%. Maybe if I needed a weird tiny screw to fix a watch would I have been able to use this. Returning (at my expense) and ordering a replacement, with shippingcharges, hoping I get a better bag tthis time. If not, this will end up being an expensive dead end project.
- Love these bits and pieces!
I add these parts to bezel pendants to create unique, 3D looking pieces. I forgo adding a glass cabochon and build up layers and adding resin for a really intricate look. I try to always have these on hand because they add a great accent to nearly anything. Each pack is a grab bag assortment, so it's never a sure thing what you get. Creating a piece is an adventure when I use these! A must buy for those intermediate and experienced beaders that love the steam-punk look and want to try something new.
