Default Czech Glass and Crystal Beads..do you know of them?

I posted a question earlier regarding Czech beads, but got too many answers from non-beaders. So, can those who make jewelry answer this... If the beads you see on the link below were made available to you in the US, by either web or in a shop, would they interest you?I have been making jewelry for many years and may begin importing these beads to sell. Just getting a feel for how many beaders like them. Thanks y'all.http://www.starbeads.cz/katalog/mo/en/256-vinute-perly/

I do use some chzech glass, but mostly druks. I also tend to stay away from the crackle finish - it's a personal preference. In addition to druks, I think the pressed glass (Leaves, flowers, trumpets, drops) would sell best of the chzech stuff.The druks look nice when strung or used in beadweaving so they appeal to a larger numbers of beaders.note - the druks are great for Right Angle Weave.The pressed glass has a lot of versatility and looks nice strung, and used as embellishment or charms.Hope this helps

Have you looked to see if big websites like firemountaingems and the others who advertise in American magazines like Ornament, retail these already?

I also have been making jewelry for years, but in my interior design practice also use these types of beads to embellish lampshades, pillows, draperies, table runners, napkin holders and table cloths. They are beautiful.
