Q from a former bead maker

Wow, it's been a long time since I hung out here. I stopped making glass beads and switched to paper almost 3 years ago so . . .
I'm still ordering glass beads for separators though and I've lost my source for #6.
I've used Old Style Trading Co. out of TX for years and she's disappeared.
No web site and phone has been disconnected.
I loved buying hanks or strings and the quality was always top notch.
I also use Bead Wrangler but I was wondering if anyone had another suggestion; particularly pointing toward hanks/strings.
You guys were always a great source so I thought of you first.
Here's an example of what I've been up to.

Hope I remembered how to load an image here. These are grocery bag beads.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Ellen! Have you tried Tandy Leather Supply? That's just a w.a.g. on my part, since I don't use anything like that.
Best of luck.
Hugs & you, your 4 legged bud & Pete.
