Silver Beads

Hi guys, I'm going to Thailand in October and will be looking for silver beads which I can make jewellery from.

Does anyone know where the best place to buy them from and how much is silver by the gram over there. I hope to buy strands of beads to bring back. I'm told that I can bring back under a $1000 Aus if I have invoices with no trouble at customs. Does anyone have any stories of having trouble getting silver back into Aussie?

Sydney, Australia

Go to Khaosan Rd. in buddy lodge hotel. There is a shop called Silver Beads that sells beads by the gram. They also sell other silver accessories. I was recommended by my guide since it was her friend's shop and it was really cheap. You have to ask for wholesale price.

Not sure that it's still there, I was there last year.

Good Luck.
