Not being an active collector for several years (until a few months ago), many of my go-to sites/sellers have up and gone.
I would still like to list them on this site, as most of them have helped me in some form or fashion while creating this site.
Links are provided to the following sites that carry both new and/or vintage products:
eBay, Etsy, Artfire retailers:
While I put an immense amount of time into researching the Articles in the Swarovski Element Guide,
there are folks out there contributing to my research that make the site that much better.
Robert, whose father was a bead dealer, was the self-proclaimed king of vintage glass! Robert was also a professional photographer, and a brownie enthusiast.
Robert was very helpful in identifying (and supplying) rare Swarovski colors and shapes. Since his passing, his daughter Beth has taken over the business.
Stephen, Cathy and their team run Katie's Treasures in Waratah, Australia - a full service beading supply store.
Stephen has been especially helpful in the identification of various Swarovski packaging, and finding rare items for my collections (and his!).
