Hi all,

If anyone happens to make beads out of their crystals (suitable for jewelry making), please contact me with your prices.

Thx!

Hi afrosaxon ... do you mean jewelry pieces, or just the beads - as in drilled or ? ... sorry I need coffee :P

And I need sleep! :D

just the beads. I'm ordering for my jewelry, and some places just seem suspect with regard to the authenticity of their semiprecious stone beads (one site actually lists some items as smoky "quartz", rose "quartz", etc...that makes me nervous).

I'd rather give my business to people who love crystals and won't try to pass off fake ones. ;)

No worries afrosaxon :)
I've had coffee now - it all makes sense :P

Yep, Ive made the mistake of buying some dyed clear quartz .. :rolleyes: .. not good. I try to buy from a store ... even then I ask for a written receipt, and if theyre not what they said ... grrrrrr! At least I can take them back.
I now buy my beads from a gem shop - not a jewelry supplier :)
