I am looking for any reccomended dealers/suppliers of gemstone
beads,freshwater pearls and cultured pearls. Anyone who might have a
selection of unusual shapes and sizes?
Here are two I like:
42 West 48th St. Rm. 1002
16 West 32nd St. 7th Fl.
I’ve never really checked the quality of the high end cultured pearls at
Taj, but I believe they do have them.
The best way to buy beads is at a local Int’l Gems and Jewelry Show. They
will be in Seatlle, WA and Overland Park, KS June 20 - 22, Portland, OR and
Houston, TX June 27-29, Timonium, MD and San Antonio, TX July 4-6, Antlanta,
GA July 11-13 and Marlborough, MA July 18-20.
Hope this helps.
