A friend turned me on to this site. Big mistake. HUGE.  

Anyway, I've been in search of a bead like the one I'm linking to below (under 10 posts, so I can't upload a picture  Undecided ). Does anyone know what these babies are called or where I may find them in silver (looking for a larger size)?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm off to explore the rest of this site. Goodbye, life!!

Welcome to craftster!

I have actually never seen a bead like that before, but depending on how you are planning to use it you could probably use a spacer bead with rhinestones in its place.  Maybe something like this http://www.firemountaingems.com/itemdetails/H203155MB .  If it is more of the hour glass shape this might work http://www.firemountaingems.com/itemdetails/H207550MB , but the hole goes the other direction and it doesn't have rhinestones, but you could also add crystal beads for shine.

The site I've linked (Fire Mountain Gems) is also a great resource for buying beads online.  They have almost everything and the have bulk pricing on various items.  For example is you purchase on of 15 different items or 15 of one item you get the bulk price for 15 items, so you can get good prices as well as a good selection. And if you are in the US and don't need expedited shipping the shipping is a $5 flat rate.

Even though I couldn't help you find exactly what you were looking for hopefully I have helped some.

Thanks for the welcome and reply (and suggestions!).  Those won't work, but I appear to have reached a dead end. If the experts here haven't seen it, it must be a one-off. I saw an amazing, huge bracelet made with them and I never forgot it. Le sigh.

Happy New Year!

I have actually seen these at Michaels. I bought some a few weeks back, but haven't decided what to do with them (only they are silver, not gold).
