Where can I find quailty plastic beads?

Hi there --

In my opinion the nicest quality & prettiest 'plastic' beads are the Lucite (particularly vintage Italian Lucite  if you can find them) and the resin beads. Might want to try a websearch or ebay search using either lucite beads or resin beads -- & include the word vintage if you like -- instead of just plastic beads.

jewelex.com sometimes has a good selection of vintage Lucite beads although I believe most of theirs may be US-made (which can be veryy pretty too) ... and for numerous examples of pretty resin beads (new, made in Java, Indonesia...!), try naturaltouchbeads.com

Try firemountaingems.com.  They had some nice ones in their catalog (well, I liked them, depends on what you want them for Wink)  I was told that Wal-Mart has some cool ones now, but I haven't looked myself.
