  • Bead chips

    Hello. Does ayone know where I can get stones without the holes in? I was recently given a box of small chips multi stones i think they were from pastimes!!

    I know you can buy loose stones in certain 'new age' shops, but the last offer i saw was 4 tiny stones for £1 so looking to buy a more value package if possible. Thinking of making something for valentines day

    Thanks

    I have seen it suggested that you may be able to find some in the garden centres.

      I buy them at the warehouse but I was asked to make a brooch from a specific stone which I didn't have - being a canny Yorkshire lass I put a few gemstone chips beads in a strong plastic bag and whacked it with a hammer - and voila it worked perfectly and cheap as erm chips

        Very good! think i will try that when i order some new beads, must be quite fun to see the spray of handmade bead cheaps too all random.
        Hmm i dont drive so find it hard to get to garden centres! that would be cool to find nice stones there
        I have about £20 of botched up sterling silver which im going to stick stones on to get rid of the itty scratches see thats crafty
