Hi folks,

Can anyone out there tell me where I can find a wide selection of
different sized sterling beaded with a low minimum?

Many thanks,

Merilyn:

We make beads out of tubing. I could bead some tubing for you that
would give you the same look. But, I don’t think we can go below 1.5
m/m beads. If that size and larger will work for you? Sterling
beaded wire was made by Handy and Harman in Connecticut. They sold
there complete metal processing facility to Tiffany and Co. last
year. However, I don’t think Tiffany will be selling raw material
products to the trade. Word is they will consume all the wire, strip
and tubing production on there own products. Let me know what sizes
of bead wire you will need (bead size and lengths) and I will let you
know if we can accommodate your needs.

Contact me off line and we can discuss. Ron@ronaldprattcompany.com
