I have used India Tree, I found them at my local Central Market and Sur La Table. I'm not sure what size they are, but they run about $9-$12 a jar and one jar goes a long way. I think they are a great size, and they are available in a few different colors. I've used them for the tops and sides of several of my cakes and they look great. I think the website is indiatree.com
Hope that helps!

I think 8mm is a good all-purpose bead size.

4mm is very small to me... you would definitely need tweezers to place them lol. You could go 6mm, but like I said 8 is a good size for "test driving," I think lol.
