Okay, so I know I told you I'm not really a "beader" per se, but more of a "charmer" if you will. Still, a large percentage of the jewelry sites out there speak to beaders. Some of them have charms as well, and some of them don't. One site I checked out today is www.Vicalla.com.
Vicalla sells at least 18 categories of beads, one of which is (yay!) pearls. They had no less than 66 different colors and varieties of pearls, although I have to admit that I'm a sucker for the traditional white round ones.They also sell tools and wire and findings. Even watchfaces. But no tutorials. And NO CHARMS!
I did stumble upon a site with unique sterling silver and silver plated charms. Go to www.charms4you.etsy.com. I was psyched to find them and can't wait to shop for some really cool and different charms. When you stop by the site let them know that I sent you!
Enough for now. I've got some charm shopping to do.
