Where to find some neat things July 22, 2005 7:24 PM

I have looked around and here are a few I like. This one gives you ideas and products to make it yourself, or they can do it for you (ha! we are more talented than that). However, I can still learn a few things. http://www.findcustomjewelry.com/ This place sends you a catalogue with order and sell a lot of great crystals, beads, and accessories at decent prices: http://www.auntiesbeads.com I got some great butterflies in semi-precious stones here: http://giftsjoy.com/ I will post more as I find good sites. Share any info as well with us!  [ send green star]

Vintage Crystal August 30, 2005 7:41 PM

If anyone is looking for vintage crystal , you might want to try www.NicePeople4U.com I buy from them whenever they are at a tradeshow near by. They sell retail as well as whole sale. Really nice quality crystal & glass. a little on the expensive side. If you buy $300.00 worth of beads they give you another $300.00 free. It's not hard to spend that much, Thank God for plastic!  

P.S. You might want to check for shows in your area many will sell retail two of them are, The intergalactic bead show & The whole bead show.  I Prefer to go & buy there because I can handpick what I want.

I stumbled over this September 24, 2005 7:46 AM

while looking for the yellow chinese turquoise, and I think they have nice things in reasonable prizes

I looked at those links you found in the magazines. September 24, 2005 8:45 AM

www.ubeaditsacramento.com
the porcelain goddesses and totems were absolutely amazing! The wolf and the fox aren't that good, but the badger and the otter! WOW!! 14 dollars for those isn't too much, I think...

www.gems-stones.com
They don't seem to have fixed prizes and I can't figure out how to buy anything from there - it looks like they sell through shows, faires and so on.
Their new lampwork beads look very nice

The same goes with www.nybead.com. They don't even have a cataloque on-line, so it's hard to see what they offer.

www.dibeads.com
These have a lot of tools and such, cords, boxes, and such - and some pearls, but it's not very inspiring. They have what you know you need in reasonable prizes, I think.

www.beadsgalore.com
These are really nice - they seem to have all the pearls on site as well, so you don't need the catalogue
Very nice things of abalone and mother-of-pearl and I like the Indian glass beads as well.

I agree, Lea Zinke makes beautiful beads


And Blake Brothers seem to be interested in serving "proper customers" only...

http://wire-sculpture.com
have cloisonne pearls...

diy network offers ideas and tips and such
about jewelry and asseccories

Hugs,

OMG Ketutar, you're absolutely right! Those porcelain Goddesses are unbelievably spectacular! I am in love with their Porcelain Totem - Small Owl.

Thank you for all those links! That's an amazing amount of information and resources for us to explore.
