Hi does anyone know of a supplier for glass coloured (different shaped) beads or stones - they don't necessarily need to have the holes in them as I am going to wrap wire around them rather than through them. Thinking of making some pretty hanging garden bits for my very small garden but don't want to spend the earth. Oh and looking for them to be about an inch in size or just under x

If you are just going to wrap them what about marbles? or those Glass pebbles you get to put in bowls etc? I have seen some stunning wire wrapped projects using those

Thats a great idea and you can pick up a bag full for only a couple of quid in places like wilkinsons and the lilke.
