I love these rectangle/square beads.
I picked up more rose coral beads from Michael's.
I love perusing craft stores, and the selection for beads has really grown these past few years. It's crazy to see so many aisles. There definitely wasn't that much of choice when I first started (Not that I'm terribly old, haha). They're just so fun to go through.
If you want to start making some jewelry I would recommend going to the larger art stores.
I don't really buy my bead strands there but I religiously check for these beads:
They are usually never in stock! I get them while I can, but of course with coupons because they cost $14.99 regularly, lol. Michael's has a sale right now where their bead collection is 50% + I had a 15% off coupon.
One of the strands was slightly larger and a deeper pink.
I know girls with shoe problems and makeup problems but me, I have a serious bead problem. I. Can't. Stop. Purchasing. I need to go to meetings.
Even so I don't own half of what other crafters own : (
