I have been going nuts trying to find the 7mm coin pearls to make the Sweet Starbursts necklace on page 70 of the Oct/Nov 2009 issue of Beadwork.

 

The designer lists CrysallisGEMS on etsy as her source, but they are not there anymore.

 

I have tried every bead site I could find in my Beadwork and Bead & Button magazines but no luck.

 

I have all the other components waiting to be purchased at Fusion Beads.

 

Can anyone help?

I found 8mm here: http://www.beadfx.com/catalogue/pearls.php

There is also a BD member around (Carole, I think) who has an online shop selling pearls. I don't know if she has 7mm coin pearls on the site, but if not you can ask.

 Here are some http://www.treasureislandpearls.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=601

If you do a search on this website at the top for coin pearls there are 5 pages of them. I just went to the first white strand that had 7mm. They probably have more.

Good Luck and we would love to see it when your finished!

Koko,

Thank you.  I did find some Glass - 10 mm Fat Flat Rounds - Old Rose Lustre.  I ordered them because they were so pretty and inexpensive, even if it turns out they won't work in this necklace.

It is frustrating not to be able to find the resources listed for projects.  You might try substituting another pearl for the 7 MM  - Here's one that might work for you.  Here's the link to the site.  http://www.beadinspirations.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=104_308_315&zenid=76e837a7146d0409e529e1f3cd3ad9e7

and the product.  Hope this helps, Shana

 I'm having the same problem.  I'd like to make this necklace for my Grandmother.  Please let me know if you're able to find these beads.

Thanks!

I have some glass 7mm coin pearls in very light pink, but they are center-drilled. Zip it!

Someone just dug up this old post to spam us all. The post is almost 2 years old, Get a life spammers.

Happy Beading!!

oh dear! i never realised there was a post on my necklace. so sorry! please feel free to contact me personally at anytime as my details are in the magazine! I'm sad to hear the coins are so difficuld to find but any round bead will look perfect in this design. i myself made a second one in green with black onyx round beads and that looks lovely.

If any of you ladies would be willing to share your creation with me i'd be delighted to see them!.

regards,

Wishing you a Happy New Year.

I too have been trying to find coin 7mm pearls for the Sweet Starburst necklace today 2.1.2013.

Finding 7mm pearls round is difficult let alone coin shape. Would it be possible to use 8mm round pearls instead? Would the design still work. I am very very new to beading, my only work being the pewter lace bracelet in the same magazine as your Sweet Starburst necklace. I have also found over the last week that living in the UK presents me with lots of problems regarding finding beading supply shops in the UK. Are there any reliable outlets that you could recommend.

I would so much like to make up your design and would appreciate your help.

Wishing you all the best in 2013 and happy designing.

Lubybel
