I finally got around to holding up the white box pleated, black rolled hem organza I have for this dress, and I realized my precious linen is really ivory. Oh no! The white is GLARING. What to do?

Tea!

Lemon tea!

No, not to calm me down, to dye my poly organza trim. I wondered if it would take the tea dye, but it did. Yay!



See the difference between the tea-dyed test strip of organza and the glaring white organza? Yay, I'm so glad it worked!

Since you guys are so awesome at helping me find what I need, I have come to you, my sewing/crafting friends, once again for help.

I have been to Joann's and Michael's, but no luck. I have searched Ebay and Google, but I must be entering the wrong description.

I want long drop beads (1"-1.5" long), sort of like this (center bead):



In fact, I just love that necklace! Too bad it's so expensive on Etsy :( (Morning Glory Designs if you want to see their fabulous collection)

Anyway, I wanted to make earrings and a necklace for the 1830's gown (ahem, that I haven't started yet), and I want long drops in both pieces. Help to find this type of bead (not red...my gown is dark mauve/black shot taffeta), so maybe black? I'm not even sure if it's plastic or glass or what!
