I love the Swarovski beads and Swarovski pearls also. They are so sparkling beautiful.
You can buy Swarovski beads online.
Here are two links to the online store.
The Beading Room
They send the beads to Canada

Can Do Creations
I don't know if they do send it to Canada also. You can contact them to find out.

Enjoy browsing through the beads.

i love swarovski beads too, but i like the pearl ones more now. lol. dunno why.. but anyways.. this is a site that offers beads. they sell to both the us and canada
http://www.artbeads.com/index.html

this site provides a list of shopping areas in vancouver, that's beads related
http://www.crafter.o.../Vancouver.html

i think there's a store in yaohan mall, that's in richmond that sells beads. but i haven't been there for a while. i'm not sure if it's still there.

I went to www.artbeads.com that you have recommended. It was a great site for Swarovski beads and the deals are not bad at all in US dollars. Plus the shipping is very reasonable out of the US. They have a huge selection too. Thanks again.

lol.. yes. not bad for most stuff. but the only problem for out of the us shipping.... is to watch for custom fees. they add up to quite a lot. might even make the beads seems expensive.

Well, the crystle beads that I use to make my rosaries are ordered from Fire Moun Gems in the States, quite reasonable prices. The more you buy, the cheaper they are, you could look into that.

there's always the bead shop on granville island...
and also there's one in Richmond... do you know where the IHOP is? in the little strip mall behind there. it's pretty small, but they have a good selection of beads... i wouldn't say they were "cheap" though... sadly. *sigh*

actually... yeah... it's not like the granville shop is cheap either.

haha. sorry. i'm useless. ^O^;;;;
