These little pearls sparkle! I saw these when I was in Monterrey NL and picked up a few! I was so happy to see that Bee's Barked Art Supplies carry this brand. Last year, I watched a you-tube video and the person demonstrating had a burgundy color to accent her flamingo wings. I had to have these but she did not provide the name of the pearls as a friend had given them to her. The dark gray make great eyes too! I gave my niece some and she used them as an accent in the middle of her flowers on her cookies.
