Preciosa? They come in 80 different colors. I'm drooling over the design possibilities of these two hole beads in combination with seed beads and crystals.
I contacted the representative for the continental United States and Canada about availability. I found out that they should be available from distributors around the end of this month. I was very pleased to learn that Shipwreck Beads and Fire Mountain Gems will be distributing them, as those are two of my favorite online bead sources.
OK, now it's time to get back to pattern making. I'm almost finished with the Christmas ornament cover pattern I mentioned. I'll post as soon as I've finished and published it for sale.
