    oh lucky you!!! Do you have any money left though after buying that wool???? You know what happens when you enter a bead shop ! You'll go in for a couple of odd's and ends and come out 30 quid lighter!

    Iv never been through to the Edinburgh bead shops but iv heard that there are a couple of good ones. Fingers crossed someone will be along soon !

      Well il have OH with me so i doubt il be allowed to spend much. But you never know, he might give me a hand

      I had a search on line and found a shop called Rene Walrus. Never heard of it. I know of bead shops in Edinburgh but never noticed if they did sterling silver stuff. Sometimes buying from the net can be annoying as you cant handle them. Plus makes finding the right size easier....

        There's the Edinburgh Bead shop in Stockbridge and the Little Bead Shop in Bruntsfield and Helios Fountain at Grassmarket.

        Stockbridge will definatley have sterling silver findings, not sure about the other 2 though

            Last time I was in the little bead shop, she didn't have any sterling silver findings. Wasn't long after she'd moved to Bruntsfield though, so maybe she will now. If you definatley need sterling silver, might be worth a call first.

                Well i called ahead to the Little Bead shop and she said that they did do a small selection of sterling silver findings. It was on my way to visiting a friend so i decided to go there.

                I got one sterling silver lobster clasp....and spent £15 on beads.......
