Comments:

I have gotten these beads from three suppliers.  Supplier A sold a light bronze bead which I loved, but their price went up 75%.  Supplier E sold a bead which was slightly darker and more yellow, but their price also went up a huge amount (which made no sense since that supplier continues to sell bronze-colored beads in other shapes that are reasonably priced -- yet the round shape is the easiest to make).  Finally I found a new supplier, and their price is substantially lower.  Not only that, but the beads are a little lighter, closer to the beads that supplier A was sellingI was able to lower my price by 20 cents per lot.  The beads pictured are from supplier A; it is an old picture and not very good.

Supplier: A, E, M (buy from supplier M from now on)
