Sigh. These would be fabulous beads came with areas of issue for me. I'm sick of chasing after vendors. She did have a disclaimer for her Indonesian beads. These are resin. I guess I expected better OR more distressing. When there is just a single spot in an otherwise smooth area, it looks poorly made-NOT as having handmade character or however it was worded. AAANNNYHOOWW, I don't have any more energy to devote to bitching out a seller, so any thoughts on how to distress these more? Can I take a hammer to resin? Maybe stain them? Update on the beads that never came- I "opened a case" for non-delivery. (Etsy's term) and long story short, she had been sick, I now have my beads, and I have closed the case. Thanks for all your input. Babies are banging on something, I think I'll go join them!
