Hello Jacquelyn Fogel, I met this lady at Tucson and bought quite a
bunch of FWP in various shades from her. As always, you get what you
pay for in pearls, but Slivana has a nice range of quality & sizes
for the price. I understand her source is China, and she makes
periodic trips there to buy. Here’s her email address:
silvana@stmdesigns.com If the message comes back as undelivered, try
again. She told me that her webpage is undergoing construction and
will occasionally be unavailable to your email. Usual disclaimers -
no connections or kick-backs. Hope this helps. Judy in Kansas, where
it was 40 degrees last night. Brrrr for this time of year.
