Where do you buy beads? I bought some at michaels but I'm sure I can find them cheaper, also do u use letter beads? If so what kind u use? Sorry for all the questions but I'm just starting on this.
Ask as many questions as you'd like. I get my beads from a wholesale site called www.timewellcorp.com
. You have to have a tax ID# to purchase from them, though, which you probably have. I use mostly Swarovski crystals and 4mm and 6mm round sterling silver beads in my jewelry. I also use www.nilecorp.com
for a few findings and packaging...dirt cheap. Timewell sells their 4.5mm sterling silver letter beads for .90 a piece. My local bead shop sells them for $2.85 a piece...Yikes! You can buy the pewter letter beads, which are really cute for kids (and adults), for .64 a piece: http://www.brightlingsbeads.com/pewt...ter-beads.html
. For the little girl version of this headband I see people use cat's eye beads and they are pretty inexpensive.
I hope this helps.
