You are so right! That's about all the beads at Walmart are good for, just practice. My experience with them was negative. The finish comes off very easily too. Czech seed beads are okay but not very uniform. And that's okay if you are looking for a rustic look. They have their purpose for sure. I do like the Czech crystals. They are less expensive than the Swarovski's. The best quality crystals are the Swarovski's and the Miyuki for seed beads and Tila's. You get what you pay for. :)
