I'm planning to make jewellery with cancer awareness themes - does anyone know where I can get good quality but inexpensive awareness beads? I have checked a number of on-line resources but they seem to be relatively expensive.
have you tried to contact charities? They probably order millions of them, but you would pay higher price when buying small quantities.
Sell your items in their shops, let them keep big part of the profit.
I saw a couple of bead store sites that sells colored, silver-plated awareness ribbon beads for $0.89. Like any other stores that sells them individually, you'd get more discount the more you buy. What kind of cancer are you incorporating in your jewelry? It seems Lavender (representing cancer, in general) is the easiest to find.
Contemporary Beads in Port chester, NY produces a nice line pewter. They've got a $200 min.
Well, these earrings are 33 cents a pair. You could probably just take the beads off???
