[Source] Indonesian river pebbles


#1

Hello Orchid,

It’s been too long since I’ve posted here! Been busy, though, and
you all are never far from my thoughts.

A while back, an acquaintance had purchased a shoebox full of green
pebbles on ebay. I acquired a baggie of them and have been using them
ever since in a series of pieces. I’m now running out and wanted to
resupply. The acquaintance has no more that she’s willing to part
with, I can’t find any on eBay, and all of the sources for these
stones either have them in too large a size or want to sell me 20
metric tonnes of them. Hence my plea!

What I’m looking for is sold as indonesian river pebbles, light sea
green and light blue, in sizes ranging from 1/2" - 1-1/2" You can see
a picture of them in one of my pieces here - these are the color and
roughly the size I’m looking for:

I would be more than happy to pay for shipping from some distant
place (like Indonesia) as well as compensation for the rocks
themselves and am looking for about a shoebox’s worth.

Can any of you help me?

Thanks so much!

A quick search yielded these results which look promising:

A landscaping supplier in Florida. I suspect they sell their products
in cubic feet, cubic yards, tons, or other more-than-you-need
quantities. Bet you could sweet talk them into a shoebox full for a
nominal price… See their “Indonesian Jade Pebbles”

Or this supplier in California
http://www.bedrockboulders.com/Beach%20Pebbles.htm

and many others.

Google “landscaping pebbles”

Hi Karen:

I’m not sure this would work for what you want/need but I’ve had
good luck finding pebbles in the colors that I want by going to
garden shops - they use pebbles for all kinds of things - rock
gardens, water features, etc., and usually have them in all different
colors and shapes. And you can buy either a big or small bag of them
for relatively little money. If this doesn’t work for you then try
searching for pebbles on line. There is one such source at

http://www.larryscaprockandstone.com

Whether or not you can purchase small quantities, I don’t know, but
it’s worth a try. And it can be that this supplier furnishes the
stone to garden stores around your area.

I’ve bought handfuls of these pebbles in all different colors to use
for different things and still have some I picked up on the beaches
of England when I was there and have plans for making a bracelet
using them.

Check this out - I think you will be surprised at what you find is
available.
