I have done the classic - chose some project from the Laura McCabe book- took it on holiday and didn't have enough of a certain bead.  Now I'm back I can't find them anywhere.  Have bought some 15/0's from GJ & Bojangles and both are the wrong colour.  I think I bought them at a bead fair in a little plastic bag so dumped them into a plastic box without putting a name or colour ref.!!  I find that 15/0's are quite difficult to get hold of so may have to wait until the next bead fair. They are a bronzy green transparent but with what looks like a gold lining.  Any suggestions of other good suppliers/specialists would be gratefully received.  Maybe I should post a picture of the few I have left?

Put a piccy up, you never know, one of us may have some!  I know I have loads of seed beads which I never use.

We have the little grains of sand commonly known as 15/0 seed beads!!!
Not sure we have the colour you are describing but I'll have a look in the shop tomorrow.
We're not selling online yet but hope to be soon. However, I'm always happy to bypass t'Internet  Grin

Thanks Ladies

I will have a look at the various web sites & will take a piccy later this week - I have a feeling I may end up with a bit more than a couple of bags of '15's.  Wink btw they're not delicas V  -just tiny rondelles.

Hope this is clear enough - I wondered if they might be a lined topaz of sorts.

Would be most grateful if one of you can recognise these.

Closest I have found are these ... Clicky here (2.60euro for 11g)
sorry it is a German website (it is normally where I get all my miyukis from) but still - it is so hard to tell - their photography is not brilliant Undecided

Thanks Nicola - it could be them - I stupidly thought they could be gold or green lined but the close up lens shows its probably silver! The old mincies aren't as good as they used to be Smiley

I'd say silver-lined topaz - fortunately quite a standard colour!

Do you know what - 'root beer' sounds familiar - I really wish I'd kept the packet now.
