hi girls, my mother makes jewellery tooand rosary beads, becoming a bit of a business for her as when she made them for presents, everyone was asking where they got them! Her crystal rosary beads were fantastic, and she's done them for a few brides - some for them, some as gifts for grandparents. She sources alot of her beads on ebay, and most of them are beautiful, particularly the crystals. just read the sizes on them carefully, as sometimes they arrive and are quite small. I make my own jewellery for personal use and I use ebay too. She has just got some beautiful purple crystals, and decided she wanted to make my BM's stuff for our wedding. Such a relaxing hobby too!!!!!! GL, if you want to pm me, I can find out the good ones for crystals, the good ones for spacers etc. . . . .
