 I'm looking for czech glass flower beads in 4 petal, 3 petal, and the "posey" style.... see links for shapes I'm looking for.... I am most interested in Opal colors, Reds, clear pastels, clear AB.... or a color mix.  I've got lots of things to trade for them, pearls, stones, glass, plated metal findings, crystals.....

 Jeni-- yeah, me too! I've bought a few of the ones I am looking for here and there, and find them MUCH easier to work into designs, but they're less common.... and most of the places I've found to buy them they're quite expensive. *sigh* really wish FMGs carried them!

 Mary-- well, I can get SOME of them from ArtBeads, for about $0.35, so not more than that.... but it's being harder to find the opal colors.... those are the ones that are translucent.... I'd LOVE the white, blue, purple, pink, and green opal colors, the garnet red, clear, any of the pastel clear or AB colors.... I am hoping to do some things with the same color base, but more than one tone and size.... I'll send you an email!

Lois -

For some reason, the links to the Artbeads pages aren't working for me (my connection, not your links), but I wanted to point you to a friend's Etsy shop.  She specializes in vintage flower beads, and she may have what you like:

 Hi Lois.  I don't even know why I bought these beads, because I don't even know what to use them for, but are any of them beads you can use?  If you want them, send me an email and I will tell you how many I have of each.

 I sent you an email.  If you send me your address, I'll mail them out today, and you can send me back whatever amount of beads that you think they are worth.

Lois,

I think I have some of these you will want, do you still need some or have you gotten what you need by now?  Let me know, if you do, I will take a picture of what I have.
