Look at: http://www.ijsinc.com/ Indian Jewelers Supply (your
best bet)

And at: http://www.tbscorp.com/ Thunderbird supply

Both in New Mexico USA

Indian Jewelry Supply has a stock list of these , and also can get
specials made up. Delivery on some items may be slow because they are
hand made probably by Native Americans who also do silver work. I
don’t know for sure about Thunderbird Supply , but they serve the
same market. International shipping should be no problem Jesse

Hello, I am sure you will receive many replies. Have you considered
making your own?

You already have a book with many of the designs in it. Most of the
silver smiths I know proudly make their own using punches as a base.
Sand the head smooth, and carve/cut in a new design after heating the
metal, quench harden after that.

I believe the book you have has as to how to make your own.
Punches can be heavy when you order quite a few. I frequently see them
at shows, also in jewelry catalogs. Dan Woodward of Indian Jewelers
Supply is also on this board, and will probably reply to you. They are
a good source for many of these Indian related tools.

Good luck, Teresa
