Another boring small bead inquiry

I'm seeking more of these Czech glass trade beads, especially brown: Small roughly 4x6mm faceted opaque glass rice/oval beads.

I had one strand I bought from a vendor years ago. I've found black ones from ONE vendor on Etsy, and some red ones at Rings'n'Things (but can't order them, their website has been wonky for two weeks now.)

I've done Google image searches, checked places like Picard Beads (they said they don't have any), and a couple other well-known trade bead vendors. No luck.

Anyone have suggestions? And does anyone know what's going on with R&T??

Here are pics of what I'm looking for, and a recent necklace I used them in.

i think of this shape -though fairly regular, as rather similar to the solid forms of pomegranate seeds that find themselves a way to fit and grow up against each other confined in a restricted shape...forming rounded facets... often confusingly semi-transparent...

This seems to be coming back to me! I bought a couple of strands in turquoise blue from the traders years ago but havenít seen them for a long time. Thanks, John!

I got to thinking that I was so preoccupied with finding brown beads that I hadn't really checked my stash for other colors. Yippee! I found a couple strands of aqua, a couple strands of teal, and even a couple strands of red! I was able to find strands of red, blue, and yellow at Picard Beads (thank you John and Ruth!). But if anyone sees any strands of brown for sale online, please let me know, I would be so grateful!
Again, so glad this group has been so helpful. 🤗

Maybe it will help me find more brown ones!
I did find black ones on Etsy, and blue, yellow, and a couple red strands at Picard Beads. (Thank you, Ruth and John for the deeper search!)
