    it all depends on what kinda bead you are wanting but try these places and don't forget ebay

    My comments are based on what I have been taught and my experiences over the years I have been around the circle. They should in no way be taken as gospel truths and are merely my opinions or attempts at passing on what I have learned while still learning more.

                I spoke with the owner last year......she and her late husband shipped 36 or 3 tons of beads up from California some years back. WOW!!!!!! Imagine having that many beads!!!!! I can't remember which she said, 36 or 3 tons.

                Anyway, still alot of beads!!!!!!!

                I've got a nice little collection of 15/0 and 16/0 cuts from Mangum's...courtesy of of the Mods here. He spent like well over a $100 on beads there, amounted to like a handful of beads.......she's expensive, but, worth it!!!!!!

                I picked up the most GORGEOUS hank of 15/0 cuts from bead501 last year.....just gorgeous!!! Also picked up this hank of seed beads, look like they'd been dipped in glass etching shine on them, just a dull cast. But, they are NICE!!!!!!

                You are making me drool, they sound so nice! Now only if I could learn how to make myself something eh? Whoohooo!

                  I can get you tons of colors of 14's here..but not smaller. For the same 14's though you might want to check out Miyuki Beads and Toho beads online.
