A common question I am asked is, where do I get my beads?
My favorite beads come from Mumbai India that I found on recent trip.
At the Chor Bazaar, in the heart of Mumbai, I stumbled upon a street vendor that had barrels of beads for sale and was able to purchase a container to ship back home.
These beads are rough, and have flaws but they are a perfect bead for tribal and urban gypsy jewelry.
For a limited time, I will offer one pound scoops of these glass lampwork and trade beads on my Etsy supply and stuff shop.
If there is enough interest, I will bring back more on my next trip.
and some finished pieces that I have added to the Tuscan Rose Etsy shop
