The set is packaged in a cardboard box. The box is marked "Deluxe Jumbo Beads Set - Make Your Own Fashion Jewelry".

The essential character of the beads set is derived from the plastic beads. Your sample is being returned as requested.

Other: Beads, bugles and spangles, not strung (except temporarily) and not set; articles thereof, not elsewhere specified or included: Other. The rate of duty will be 6.5% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
