IKEA is selling semi-round (cabochon) glass beads - identical to the Chessex life stones - under the name "Pärlan". A jar of 100 beads costs 15 sek (~€1,5, £1 or $2) and they're available in at least 4 different colors (depends on the store from what the staff told me). The downside with the IKEA markers is that the markers are not quite as even as the Chessex ones, there are a couple of deformed ones in every jar.

So if you need many markers to prototype your games this is one place to get them.

Go to most dollar stores and you can get them even cheaper - sometimes 250 assorted colors for $1.
