Beading thoughts part 2
posted by Colleen Shirazi, December 5, 2009 at 10:32 AM (Pacific)

I miss Bead Biz of El Cerrito. Just wanted to throw that out there. They've been closed for years--the shop is still there, it's just closed--and, it was a small shop, but irreplaceable.

I'm realizing this afresh, whilst searching for these:

muromoto merry chain nose pliers m21 muromoto merry bent nose pliers m22
Muromoto Merry pliers

No one in the U.S. seems to carry these. One etailer stocked two other models o' Merry, but not the green- nor orange-handled pliers.

I'll end up buying something else (it's for a gift), but I am disappointed.

Also, I made a lovely pair of earrings from fine rolo chain and tiny freshwater pearls--from a strand I'd bought from Bead Biz. This was back in the day; I didn't know what to buy...but those tiny pearls are amazing.
