I'm looking for some beads to spell words on leather thong bracelets, but all I can find are plastic or Stirling silver. I want good quality, but not megabucks! Any ideas?

Nobodysad?

Hello. In my experience eBay is an excellent source for beads etc. I buy 80% of my beads from there.
Hope you find what you are looking for.

Me too- but they all seem to be plastic or stirling silver- neither of which is what I want. Thank you very much, though!

Perfect! Thank you very much! Mind you, cube ones would be even more perfect....

They have cube ones too.
Moon within reach, and I can provide it on a stick

Thank you!. Just bought them- and some lovely Svaroski crystals as well!

They are a really lovely company. I bet your beads will be with you on Tuesday.
