I’ve been trying to source a number of unusual shapes in high
quality stone beads, but have yet to find a supplier that stocks
these shapes, e.g. top drilled (front to back) 10-14 mm beveled
octagons, 9 x 34 mm facetted drops, in the appropriate stones, e.g.
topaz, quartz, corundum, etc.
Given that I was wondering if any of you either knew of a
supplier(s) that carried unusual, well cut stone beads, or had
worked with a supplier to have a series of stones custom cut to your
specifications…If you have placed a custom cut order in the past,
do you have a sense of what the minimum order size usually is and
how costs tend to change with such an order? I haven’t been down
this road yet, so any advice would be greatly appreciated…
Thanks in advance for your help!
