I have recently started making link bracelets like the Links of London ones, but I cant find the silver slider bead used like a slide knot. Does anyone know where I can find one or what to search for on bead sites? It has been driving me crazy!

I just did a Google search  and there are several sites that should have what you are looking for.

I used the search term large hole silver round bead on Google, and lots of results exactly like the bead in your picture came up.

I think my post, or the photo  was misleading... The bead is not fully rounded, it is more of a puffed coin bead, similar to this. But I would need a 3mm hole for the braided cord to fit and be adjustable, and that bead would be used instead of a slip knot.


I have tried every variation of puffed coin/lentil/flat round/disc/coin bead I can think of and cannot find anything with a big enough hole. But I know they exist as I have seen them being sold at a market stall on a similar bracelet. Also when I asked the stall owner she said they were purchased already made so she didnt know.

If you find anything you think fits the description could you please post a link, or private message me the link

Put the keyword  "silver beads" or "silver slider beads" on Google Search, and you will get many sites about them. Try it.
