    source for giant beads

    a friend showed this necklace at our quilting bee today. she got it from a fellow artisan who is having difficulty finding a source for these beads. she got her last ones from outside of the USA. the bead is like a square tube that was cut at a slight angle, making it look a little wonky. if anyone knows where these can be purchased, my friend's friend will be very grateful. thanks.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I am looking for the conical shaped things that go on the ends of the fabric and have the lobster claw clasps attached!! I did see the big beads and metal pieces at Joannes yesterday. Not exactly like the one pictured.
