I am looking for the bottom bead, the rose-gold colored Czech glass. I am absolutely desperate to find this, as some of my most popular pieces that I sell use this bead, and I'm running out. I originally got it at my local bead store (Amore Beads in Coral Springs FL), but have not been able to find it since they ran out. I am totally desperate as I said, and if you have seen this particular bead anywhere in your online surfing, PLEASE let me know!!!

I was just at Michaels last night and bought 8mm and 10mm bags of "Bead Heaven" brand, Rose Fauceted glass beads that look a lot like those.  Hard to tell online though, that is one of the biggest hangups I have about buying beads online, I cannot touch them and see the color in person.

Those look like the "light rose" colored ones I bought from Fire Mountain.  To me, mine look a little more peachy-rose than pink-rose.  I think Rio Grande sells Czech glass too.

Rio does sell czech glass beads.  I have no idea if they have this bead because I have no idea for sure what size it is, but I can look through my catalog.  Smiley

Hi,  kziemkowski.

I was just over at Fire Mountain Gems website this morning, looking at some Czech glass, and saw a few things similar. Some of these are more "peachy", and I also threw in a link to purplish one. Maybe some of these might work? Anyhow,  here's some links:

You also might want to try emailing FMG your picture of the beads that you are looking for. I have been doing business with them for years, and their customer service is great. They can pinpoint exactly what you need, if they stock it there. In the past, they have had a few oddball things in stock that I could not find with their search engine, that they helped me locate. Nice  people there.

Unfortunately, they are a little steep on the shipping. But they might be your best bet.

Regards,
Lark
