    Thank You, Laud :) I think they are fabulous ;)

    These ones are:Miyuki 4 by 7mm Transparent Topaz AB Long Magatama (LMA- 257) But they are soooooooo much like pomegranate seeds, that I was tempted to call them that :) )) They are from Artbeads:neither Lima or Bedaholique do not have them :( I think I am hooked on Magatama beads , he-he….

    Laud, I think they would look fabulous on the Renaissance dress’s shoulder to sleeve connection and the top of cuff ?

    Hi, Julia ~ I tried messaging you, but it doesn’t seem to be working for me. You might want to try Gretchen6540 on ebay. Sometimes she has them and they are gorgeous. Also cindy’s wicked good beadz at usually has some. I noticed she has some on sale just now. Hopefully she’ll get some more in soon. Hope this helps. Happy Beading!
