Love the belly on this frog! However, only late last night, when I had a lot more beads on him, did I realize why I was unhappy with them. The color is lovely and I love the frosted look but these beads are cylinder shaped. They don't nestle together nearly as well as the round or more doughnut-shaped beads (like the Precosia beads from Czechoslovakia). I was tempted to cut them all off but instead I stilled my desire to start over by cutting off the beads from the little lizard that came in the mail. With that animal I realized how dark the 15s are. I love using the 15s but I have to have better, brighter colors.
