View Full Version : Silver connector beads

:? Hi I am new to making jewellery and new to this forum. I wondered if anyone could help me.

I have seen some beads on a website which somebody has used and I don't know what type of beads they are. They are donut in shape and allow you to string them with a bead in the middle of the hole. Also, do you know where I could purchase these?

Thanks for looking.

I am in the process of making enough jewellery for my website and hope to launch it soon.


PS I'm looking forward to speaking with you all in the future.

I dont know about silver beads but I think the name is actually donut beads and you can get crystal ones form www.mailorder-beads.co.uk

Oooo.....great site. Thanks Seahorse :wink:

I have found some which are called "washer beads". Not sure if the holes will be in the right place, but hey-ho. I'm sure I can use them anyway.

I have turned into a bead-maniac!

I think you may mean hematite donut beads. They have two holes which allow threading of a bead in the middle. I had some a little while ago and ordered some again last week. I'll send you a picture.
