I'll have to go back and look at your folder - I must have missed it! The necklace is so pretty! Do you buy beads locally or order from a catalog? I used to order from Shipwreck Beads in Lacey Washington when I had my business 20 yrs ago and their color catalog was about 12 - 14 pages. I ordered their catalog about 4 months ago and it is over 1,000 pages! I was astounded. They have great service - very fast and extremely good prices....huge slection! I've never had a bit of trouble with them in 20+ years. (we have only 3 or 4 small bead stores here and the prices are pretty high)
I use Fire Mountain Gems and Beads. [link] I love going through their catalog and can spend hours on their website. I also use yard sales and antique stores. Once in a while I get into Lansing and visit the bead stores there.
I've used Fire Mountain too and used them years ago! I have their new catalog. If I feel yukky or stressed, I just pick up the catalog and can look at it for a long time and totally forget what else is going on!
I can spend hours with their catalogs and on their website. Especially in the bargain section. I love working with the assortments. The perfect ones are nice, but I find it much more fun to work around flaws and odd shapes.
