Looked nice, but broke quickly
Pretty necklace, bright colors but broke on the second time I wore it. My attempt to fix it made it snap again.Read More
This little necklace brightens up any outfit. I get complements every time I wear it. Be careful when putting it on, though, because it *could* break easily. For the money, a great buy.Read More
nice colorful beads BUT it was not 22 inches-it was 16 inches long-the claspe was difficult to use-maybe i will try longer one-clasp sounds betterRead More
Wrong color entirely
Instead of the cheerful, brightly colored necklace that was pictured, I received a swamp green monstrosity... It is really an ugly, depressing shade of green. The workmanship is fine, but a little quality control would have been nice to ensure the item even vaguely resembles what's pictured!I'm usually a fan of Overstock and haven't had any problem before - perhaps that's why I'm so disappointed. Returning it immediately.Read More
I was amazed at the workmanship. The beads do not look like paper. The necklace is beautiful. Thanks to Overstock for carrying this wonderful item.Read More
