I am in Istanbul and I found them in Eminönü where they sell beads to make your own jewelry. Also I keep seeing them in supermarkets and some cheap asian stores where they sell everything for 1 lira. Also check flower stores, sometimes they have glass marbles. But be carefull when you are buying it, sometimes it has a polish and it prevents the marble to show off the image underneath it.

Let me know if you still cannot find it, we can find a solution ;)

hey they don't have holes on it! never! so buy them! to make a bracelet out of them you need some kinda bracelet where you can glue down the image and glass marble. try to buy little ones and without polish :)

Hello,
In Bayrakli there are a lot of flower stores like Ege Sera and Beyaz Lale.  I think that they have those kinds of beads to use in floral arrangements.
