Some places call them metalized plastic beads.  A company called Traditions makes them too.  Check out the link below and you can see what I am talking about.


I have found these beads at a few places, but I always seem to have issues.  Either they are pricey, or the company never has enough supply to fill my orders.

I have a wholesale license.  I am just looking for a good, reliable company with reasonable prices. 

Does anyone have any suggestions??? 

Thank you!

www.firemountaingems.com sells just about anything and I know they have silver color and pewter spacer beads very similar to those beads in the picture. They even have assortments of 100 for just under $20. They also do other finishes and even have handmade silver beads from the Hill Tribe in Africa (I believe). The other nice thing about them is that the more you buy, the bigger discount you get. Whenever I buy from them, I try to buy as much as I can because I usually end up getting some beads basically for free. Not to mention they will stuff a box full of any kind of bead for $5.

Traditions is a store brand for Hobby Lobby. They don't really do wholesale, but if you have a local store and fill out a tax exemption form, they will not charge sales tax and my store is really good about ordering whatever quantity I request. Granted, sometimes it takes a few weeks! I can't remember or find who the actual manufacturer is anymore, which bugs me. But you can't beat metallized plastic for lightweight, smooth holes, and still looking good!
