^^^Why not just order it online Tsuyu-sama?  I order all my Troll online as I don't have any local stores and being in the US it's cheaper for me to buy from Europe anyway since I can deduct VAT and they frequently have sales on top of that.  With silvers you don't have to worry about variation.  I ordered my copper twist bangle from Nadia at Katzenmaiers since she has most Troll 25% off now, along with a few other goodies, if I spent 100 euros I got free shipping so I got a couple mosaic pearls and a large labradorite barrel.  I'm super excited!  I order from Perlen all the time too, they don't have a sale now on Troll but every few months do 20% off Troll (plus the VAT deduction, so the stuff ends up about 35% off).

Actually, Natalie, you do have to worry about variation in some silvers, too. They often come through over-polished with the detail definition rubbed off. Or a slight variation in the facial features. Or a hole size too tight to fit on the leather necklace. It depends on the bead.

It is true that there is always a bit of variation, but I have never received a silver bead that looked totally different. I do almost all my bead shopping online. And Nadia is a most wonderful LD Smile

I just received the sugar skull, yesterday. My first skull and I love it! I will take a few pictures during the weekend, also of my lovely blue flower bead Smile

Natalie, yes, I could order online but I like it so much more to handpick them. Because I always try to get the heaviest in silver and the lightest if it's a glass bead Very Happy

^^Yes, it's always nice to handpick if that's an option! The only beads that are sold anywhere near me are Pandora, so I have to shop online if I want other brands (which I do). I've had good luck and been happy with my online purchases, but then I'm not overly picky I guess. Heaviest silver and lightest glass sounds like a good strategy, although I like the bigger glass beads!
