If you pay attention to bead prices, you know that you could pay upwards of $50 for a single Murano glass bead. As I've been traveling through New England on vacation this month, I've noticed that bead prices in craft shops have zipped up even more recently. I have to think that people are paying these insane prices out of total ignorance.
My jewelry-making friend Laura alerted me to this great Amazon deal: ten assorted Murano glass beads for $1.99 with free shipping. At $0.20 per bead, she ordered twenty packages! Beaders and crafters, grab this one before Amazon pulls one of their infamous price swaps.
