Hello I have hunted high and low for 8mm mint alabaster swarovski chatons and can't find any anywhere for sale in the UK. I do not want to buy from China /ebay as they may not be swarovski and I would like to be sure of the quality.
Does anyone know of a UK seller that sells these? I am happy to buy online.
I have found that pacific opal makes a good substitute.
I know how frustrating it can be to have an image and all the colors in your mind, what you want to make and then not be able to find any such thing. Sometimes I can find an acceptable (not perfect) substitute, and sometimes the entire piece and color scheme has to change! Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could just go to our favorite supplier and make these items magically appear? Or would we lose interest without half the challenge?
Last night I was dreaming of different coloured beads and what would go with what!
