Can any one help me find raw wood beads 43x14mm olive shape. This a project for a friend and I have looked every where on the internet. I have asked the author of the pattern but no help
I am English and live in Spain but having them posted is not a problem.
I have just retired from nursing and have found beading. How it has revolutionised my life. Fantastic!
(PS This is my first attempt at a message)

Hi! Welcome to Beading Daily! Beading is fun, isn't it?
I did find some flat beads in exactly the size you need at Fire Mountain Gems, but it sounds like you are looking for a more rounded shape. If you glue a few together, would that work for the pattern you have? Here is the LINK to the ones I found, anyway.

this is my first attempt as well. I personally have run into a few problems as well with wood beads and my personal solution is to make them out of clay. you can make any size in any color and even roll over some grainy coarse wood for texture. you could even put a wah of color and wrote off so the color stays in the drain you created. spirit beads are the only other real wood beads that i like, and that is an adventure day to gather and then poke the other end to create the bead thehole in the other end. first you have to find the juniper trees! With the clay you have endless sizes, colors, and options for interior diameter. that has been my solution one or two times. I worked in paint dept for many years and have had to come up with many solutions to difficult problems. I wish you luck in your search! Jamie
you can basically do this with any shape or size you can't find, just use the sculpey,etc, clays and make the shapes you want
