    Where to source marbles for filling nic bottles

    I used to mix my nic down to 24mg and then mix it as needed. A year later i have found it way easier to mix the 100mg straight in.
    So i have recently aquired some new 100mg nic and have decanted into 60ml bottles. They have gone to the freezer and i will start mixing this weekend.
    I have some 15ml bottles that i will keep in my vape draw for mixing (aprox 1 months worth of mix juice )and the rest(60ml bottles) i want to keep as much oxygen out as possible by filling up with marbles as i take my 15 ml out at a time and then back to the freezer.
    The bottles i got say a 18mm neck im going to take it that this is circumference. I have mesured it and the widest diameter marbles that will fit in is 8mm.
    So trying to find 8mm glass marbles is well next to impossible. I have found a heap of 8mm glass beads that are used in necklaces but no holeless 8mm marbles.

    Is it ok to use 8mm colored or clear glass beads as i can find a heap of these in place of 8mm glass marbles i just don't want to ruin my nic by placing something that doesn't belong in thier.

    If anyone can tell me where to source some 8mm glass marbles it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hope this makes sense tnx for any help.

    I would prefer to use holeless as the hole in the bead will also take some oxygen down with it. I suppose im probably getting abit anal about it but i really want this nic to stay as fresh as possible for as long as possible.

    The postage on the ones from the states os cost prohibitive. Its says 3$ then jumps to 11$ us. I think I will take ur advice and head down the local craft shop. Cheers
