Its been a while since I wrote on my blog. Just do some clean up and beads inventory. I realize that I need to add more beads collections to my inventory. Unique, vintage and more bold colors. So I google where I can buy some unique beads in Ipoh, Perak. Well, I got some address of beads supplier. It made me optimist that finally I can get my bead supply without have to go down to Kuala Lumpur. Well, sadly all the beads supplier that I got the address from google didnt sell anymore beads. They all now selling mass production jewelery from China and Korea. Never mind....there is a will there is always a way. So, I decide to go to one of the big mall in Ipoh. Its Ipoh Parade, I find some of the beads shop, but once again they did not sell beads, they sell handmade jewelry only.
Alright, still in high spirit I continue my journey to Jusco Supekinta to buy some groceries before go back to Cameron Highland. Surprisingly I find what I am looking for....my journey to Ipoh to find unique beads is find the answer. There is a stall call BEAD N MORE at level 1 opposite Universal Traveller shop selling cute, modern and unique beads. The shop owner Amy, very friendly lady show me her beads collections. There is a promotions going on, Amy have a stock clearance and selling all her beads in half price. I though WOW! I do not want to miss this offer.

Suddenly I fell in heaven, I know its sound over reacting. But if you are in my sit, to find beads supply offline is really a big challenge. Especially when you really want to touch and get connection with the beads. So the picture of the next project is already born inside your mind, once you get connection with the beads.
Anyway here are my beads finding from BEAD N MORE, I am trying to control my self from buying all the beads ^_^ . So I short my list into unique beads and beads that I rare put in my design ONLY.
|I include feather in my next project|
|There are glass beads, crystal teardrop, ceramic beads, shells, feathers|
I cant wait to create unique pieces from my beads findings.
After all the journey that I have been trough to find unique beads, I learned that how challenge, passion can made people support and became friends instantly.
