Project: Necklaces

I've been waiting for these necklaces to go on sale, but they never do. And I'm not sure I could choose just one color, especially if they were marked down. So instead, I thought I'd try my hand at making them. My only problem thus far is this: in order to get that nice twisted effect with the beads, they must have a hole that is off center, not strait thru. I haven't been able to find anything like that online. Is there a term for this kind of bead? Anyone know where to buy them? Advice will be much appreciated. :)

Edit: I've discovered that they're called top strung or drop beads! This is making my search go much more smoothly.

Monster slayer has some button pearls that would give you a similar look. http://www.monsterslayer.com/Pages/Pearls_FleshToLav/Pearls_FleshToLav.aspx

I live not far from the largest bead warehouse in the world -I'll check with them (If they don't have it nobody does!)

I love these! Especially because you can make them into a choker, which is what I love to wear...

Let us all know if you find those beads.
