Help finding jewellery supplies!

Hi,

I read the following tutorial yesterday on using resin: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/how_to_make_resin_pendants
and I want to buy some of the metal square base pendants.

She has posted links on the tutorial comments section for two sites, but I can't find any in the UK Happy I can only find them in the US and as I live in the UK the shipping costs just aren't worth it!

I have searched e-bay and there is nothing there. I have looked in my local craft shop with no joy.

Does any one have any ideas or links?

Thanks in advance Happy

Have you tried Hobbycraft? I get stuff sometimes for my Art group from there and pick up things for myself. They can be a bit pricy so I go their sometimes as a last resort. I'm also terrible for going in for one thing and coming out with loads more Happy.

Hey Happy yeh Hobbycraft is my last resort if I can't get them anywhere else I will try there. Im the same, go in for something and come out with two bags full of stuff! I've done that on more than one occasion!

Thanks, im going to try there tomorrow. Fingers crossed they will have them!
