Default Source for large brads???

I searched our tools & product here and found many sources for brads & eyelets. But none seemed to have what I want. I need 135 3/8-1/2 inch black brads. Can anyone help me?

I just got some 1" ones from marycroppins.com. I don't know if they have the size you are looking for, but it definitely is worth a look.

I was able to find large black brads at Joannes. I know that CTMH sells larger brads, but Im not sure if you can purchase them in individual colors.

Hobby Lobby has some, don't know about the size. But it's their brand, Paper Studios(?).

They were all black and 8 mm.

CTMH sells bigger brads in color sets - the black ones are in the basics collection. Here is a link to see what they look like

Thanks for the suggestions. Minis are all over the place, jumbos are easy to find but 3/8-1/2 inch??? I'm not sure about 8mm...will have to check when I get home. I have 3 different size flowers from Outlines Stamps and I want to stamp, cut out, layer and brad the center which measures 3/8-1/2 inch. Sounds simple enough huh? Just can't find the brads. Thought of buttons, but don't like the look; thought of pebbles, but a little too much $$. Anyone have another suggestion? I have to make 135 by 5/19. Aaaaack!!

Hi, again,
Just googled a conversion chart, as I am not great with metrics.... and it said that 10mm is jut over 3/8" This web site also has some that are that size....

http://www.addictedtoscrapbooking.co...U=6-758-477252

Would that work? I will look to see if they also have a 12mm which is just short of 1/2" and get back to you.

Me the third time! Looks like they have a million brads, and just scanning them, I think the 10 mm or just over 3/8" is the closest they have. Refer to my other email for the link. Hope you find what you want... I know it is soooo frustrating!
