Q&A with Melody MacDuffee

Melody: I'm soooo excited to finally get to learn how you make those beautiful earrings!! You are amazing...
Melody MacDuffee answered:
Hi Marty! It's so nice to hear from you! Thanks for the kind words. And be sure to post pics of the projects you make here on the platform. I'd love to see what you come up with! Mel
brooksmar5339998 asked:
Mel; I'm having a terrible time finding those tiny beads. I went to the website you mentioned & they were all out of stock!! I'm just waiting till they come back in stock..
Melody MacDuffee answered:
I'm so sorry! For some reason, they're not as easy to find online, though commercial bead shows tend to have them all over the place. But here are a few sources. The one with the most color choices and the easiest to shop for (though not the least expensive) is Z-Net Shows: http://www.znetshows.com/GemShow/retail/itembrowser.asp?Format=2&shape=95&size=3x2mm&Keywords=3x2mm%20rondelle%20crystal. You are looking for 3x2mm rondelles. Some sites call them "donut beads." Here are a couple of other sources, cheaper but fewer choices: The Bead Factory: http://www.beadsfactory.com/beads/chinese-crystal-beads/chinese-crystal-donut-shape-1.html?options=cart Aunties Beads: http://www.auntiesbeads.com/Crystal-Rondelle-Beads_c_2123.html. I hope this helps!
brooksmar5339998 asked:
Thank you for getting back to me! I will try all of the places you mentioned. I did make some components with larger beads & your technique for a necklace I'm working on. It is turning out quit well!
Melody MacDuffee answered:
Sorry to be so late in responding. I've been on the road again. I love the cat necklace! How cool that you're already designing with the twisted wire technique!
yarrawarra asked:
I buy the little crystal rondelles from China on eBay. Free postage & cheaper than anywhere else.
Melody MacDuffee answered:
What key words do you use when searching for them on Ebay?
