We have just a few dozen strands in our cash & carry (bead show) stock, but we can post some pictures, and we can get more too.

I'll find out when we can get pictures posted, so you know when to check back.

They are about 8mm roundish.

We will have them in the warehouse for the rest of this week, and maybe a few more days, then they will be back on the road by the end of October.

So this week, you can call Anne @ 1-800-366-2156 ext. 109.  She has the picture at her desk, and some of the strands.

I should mention, for the benefit of other readers...
We have a Ŭ processing charge on orders under โ.  That is in addition to the regular shipping charges which are determined by the carrier you choose (UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc.)

I just saw some strands of Chinese chevrons on the Bead Collector's forum and fell in love with them.  They are milkier/watery-er than old watermelon chevrons or drum chevrons, and come in quite a color range.  Prices seemed absurdly low, too.   I'd love to get my hands on some in pale green and pale turquoise and pale blue, in 4-6-8mm sizes.  By any chance did Russ pick up any on his travels??

Here they are!

<IMG SRC="/images/bbspics/round_chevron_beads.jpg">

And they're only about Ŭ.00/ 16" strand.

And I haven't forgotten about the carnelian knucklebone beads.  Just haven't been able to find any yet.

Hi Polly,
you found your strands before I posted my image.  UR2 fast!
About what size are these? and how can I order (or reserve) strands 4th from the top, 6th & 7th from the top?  (these are the pale green ones--if you get any pale turquoise, I'll take those, too.)
thanks,
Luann

Don't worry, I'll be adding to my order, Polly.  Just won't be able to place the order for a week or so, but would definitely like to reserve these, if at all possible.
thx!
