New to this site, but found it extremely interesting. I am from Montreal (West Island area) and speak french. I have been designing and selling jewellery for about 6 months now and want to branch out. Seems that we are all a little weary of doing that big step. However Christmas is coming and it would be good to do something to promote our creations. Maybe if we gather enough interest, we can do this as a group of organizers. What do you think?
If interested, I would be willing to head up the venture. Please email me at email@example.com.
As for ideas of great places to buy beads, I found an amazing store with over 25000 types of beads, findings, chains and all kinds of wonderful stuff. They have discount prices based on your type of crafting and amounts that you buy. It is called Club Beads plus. They have a website that you can purchase directly from or go to the store on Cremazie in Montreal. (A few blocks west of the Cremazie metro).
Dont be alarmed, you have to be buzzed to get in. But they are great people are really helpful.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
