Fit the bill of what my daughter wanted.

Because it has wider beads, the curtain can only be made twice as dense (combining the bead strands from two rods), so it's still quite see-through.
ProsMy daughter is very happy with the colors and look of this beaded curtain. We bought three rods, combined two together to make twice and dense, alternating the colors, and will plan on extending the length of the curtain by gluing on sections of the strands from the third curtain. (It would work well at it's existing length in a door way, not quite all the way to the floor but good enough, but we hung ours from the ceiling to make a "closet" out of an alcove.)
ConsI watched the video about how to make the curtains more dense and how to lengthen them, and they were fairly accurate. BUT, both ends of the top rod were securely glued shut, and I had to damage the end to get it off, plus it was very difficult to do. The rest of the process went fairly smoothly, though.
Also, my daughter wanted to alternate the colors, and there weren't exactly the same number of strands of each color on both rods, so we couldn't continue the pattern exactly to the very end using just two rods. I would have had to open the third rod and use a couple of strands from that one to make the pattern perfect, but my daughter said not to bother.
