missing 25 of these beads...

I'm working on a bobbin lace collar and decided to count to make sure I had enough of the beads I chose to use. I am short by 25 beads. I bought 4 vials of beads locally quite a while ago and pulled out all of the matte finished amber ones. Have gone back to all the local shops and they are not sold anymore. I also checked online but that company doesn't seem to exist anymore.
So......I'm hoping that someone out there in blogland has 25 of these beads they are willing to part with. I'd be happy to give you some beads in exchange.

amber matte finish beads

this is the vial and the loose beads on the side are what I'm after.
Thanks so much for looking. If I don't find the same ones, I'm planning on mixing 25 similar ones at the center point of the collar.

I wish I did but don't have what you need, but someone might--if not, and you are forced to an alternative finish, may I suggest 25 of entirely Other, different beads (another color perhaps--a forced but new twist on the original plan--since 25 is an odd one out-perhaps even 24 of the new other and ONE outstanding center bead.

Those were sold at Walmart. I believe this mix may have some beads that are close:

And I may have some at home. I'll check when I get there.

Hi, there.

Well, I indeed do have about 1/4 of the elusive "frost mix" and I counted out a grand total of 14 of those matte amber beads. If you'll send me an email with an addy, I'm more than happy to make the remaining frost mix yours!

Okay - I know that's not 25, but hey, it's closer!

Thanks!
Erin

erin, you did not respond with an e-mail address so I'm responding here. the beads you show on the link are a lighter color. I found those as well at Joann's and thought they would work but they don't. I do so appreciate your checking and for the offer.

And there are these!

Okay - I'll quit bugging you now ;-)

I know how frustrating it can be to run out of something when you're sooooooooo close to the end!

oh no, erin. you are in no way bugging me. in fact, i think those on amazon are the same. i'm going to order them. thank you so much.

So glad you have found some on Amazon Deanna. That collar is amazing and I love those amber beads.
Looking forward to seeing the finished collar.

hey it's all looking promising for you deanna. sorry mine weren't right but this has been most interesting, the power of blogging - Yay!!

Nancy said...

Deanna- your collar is beautiful! I'm glad you've got the bead thing worked out. I have a very small collection and none close to what you needed.

It's beautiful, Deanna -- and how this little problem was resolved is also pretty wonderful -- ask and you shall receive, or something like that!!
