      When York Beads closed, many of us were sad to lose a great resource for Czech beads and a fun place to visit.  Luckily, two former York employees have opened mail order businesses to fill some of the void left by that beloved family business.
      In my last post, I mentioned Bon Beads, which saved my bacon with lovely colors of etched farfalle beads.  They have much more including fire polish beads, mushrooms, pyramids, superduos, and aged seed beads.  There is a $100 minimum for an order, but there is much to tempt you.  Here are some of the mushroom beads that I couldn't resist.

These are some of the etched farfalle beads that I bought for my Luminous Tweed bracelet kits.

     Bon Beads is not the only new source because Kelly Stevenson, a favorite in the bead world, has opened Back2Bead, with his own selection of Czech Beads.  Kelley has buttons, charlottes, dragon scales, fire polish, daggers, rhinestone roundels, aged stripe seed beads, and more.  There is no minimum order at Kelly's online shop.  These are some of the fire polish beads and donuts that are calling my name.

So check out either or both of these new suppliers when you need some Czech Beads.
