Pamela Israel specializes in Venetian Glass beads and is the owner
of Via Murano out of Newport Beach, CA. She offers wholesale prices,
but I don't know how comparable they are because I don't know
anything about them. However she does have a website that's very easy
to manuever through http://viamurano.com or you can email her at
I purchased some crimps and wire from her and they arrived quickly
and well packaged.
Hope this helps
