[Source] Undrilled beads


#1

Hello all,

I’ve checked my usual suppliers with no success. I need undrilled 8mm
gemstone beads… spheres…mini-marbles, whatever. Surely, someone
out there who makes beads would like to sell some without the hole!
Thank you everyone. Best regards and thanks to Hanuman, Judy in
Kansas

Fire Mountain Gems used to sell undrilled beads for caging, etc.
Don’t know if they still do. I know they still have half-drilled. Can
you hide one hole? (800)423-2319. Abeada also has half-drilled beads
and pearls. Lin
