    hi there. this seller has some lovely ones. They are in the US though but they only take £3.50 for the first item and £1 for additional items for postage.

    another tip is to use auctionsniper.com when bidding on your ebay items. You just register with them using your ebay id and password and then type in the ebay item number and the most you would pay for an item and then sit back and let auction sniper do all the work for you! They will bid on an item 3 seconds before the auction ends so your not outbid at the last minute ! its brill !!!

        I bought some pendants from a seller by a different name but in NY and they looked exactly the same type as the ones in the first link. I'm sure it was the same seller. They were very pretty but NOT dichroic, they were glass with foil underneath, they did not sparkle like real dichroic and you could tell easily once you put them next to the real ones.
        I have bought from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Dichroic-Glass-Uk as well and they are very good.
        I know you can get genuine dichroic very cheaply from the US - under £5 each with sterling silver as a fellow stallholder told me, but she would not reveal her source.

          Search very hard and you will get the price right down, the last lot we bought came from Aus. not in silver but holed ready to string on a cord cost us around £1 to £1.20. Proper stuff and very nice. we had to buy 100 but well worth it. We are putting them out at £10 to £15 which puts us about half the shop price for the same sort of quality.
          As a tip to anyone buying from the USA, we have been getting some very bad false descriptions lately, ie sterling silver that is plate, but they forgot to put the word plate in the description,

            when you are "searching".... do you just search on the net? ie, google it? I often wonder how people find suppliers in other countries

                  I usually start with ebay.com as there are far more suppliers than on ebay.co.uk. If the listing states US only postage, then email the seller as most will usually post internationally.

                  A word of warning though . . . .

                  just heard on the news that the £ is only worth $1.59 and you have to remember that paypal exchange rate is always slightly less than the actual rate so its maybe not such a good idea to buy in US $ at the moment.

                    one good way to find suppliers in other countries is to type eg.. google australia, or google Italy and check out diffrent countries that way, probably best sticking with english speaking ones though
