Have you checked on Fire Mountain http://www.firemountaingems.com/ ?
Or maybe search etsy?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Thanks for the suggestion! I have tried fire mountain gems and Etsy but, unfortunately
they don't have the style I'm looking for. I have been thinking of having them custom
made out of acrylic. I would welcome any suggestions of where to get acrylic injection
molding done! I am also looking for bulk brass brooch findings like these;

fusionbeads.com is another source of beads and findings. They also very often have sales coupons posted on their facebook page.

You might also try your local bead shop (beadshopfinder.com). Most places can get special pieces for you if they don't carry them in store.
