    I'm looking to start incorporating beads in some of my projects and would like to find a good supply source. I want to get a variety of metal/metallic beads but don't want skulls, aliens, or other creepy things.

    I've looked at eBay and most are in the $6-10+ each range. I'm looking for more along the $1-3 range.

    I don't need the fancy designs or materials, just something nice and cheap.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Amazon has a little bit of a better selection.[emoji6]

    As kdawg3030 said, Amazon.
    They have hundreds to choose from.
    These came in packs of like 10 for $6.
    I am not into the skull stuff either.

    Check out your local hobby store, like Hobby Lobby. They have large selections plus no shipping. Go on their website and most have a 40% off coupon for one item per day.

    I saw a good idea on Youtube ( can't remember the poster); small hardware parts such as pipe connectors, washers, nuts, etc, make great looking beads. Check out the post and local hardware stores.
