Awesome, thank you so much! Now I'll just have to find a supplier for the wire here in the Netherlands (or online somewhere else).

I'm so glad everyone is enjoying these.

For the wire, try a place that sells ceramic kiln supplies.

Also, for cleaning out the hole, if you take a thin copper wire and twist two wires together, it makes enough bite to scrape off the bead release when you pull it into and out of the curved hole.

It also helps to curve your stringing wire to get it fed through the hole. Transparent curved beads will be near impossible to clean. Here's some old examples of beads.
