View Full Version : Bead Supplies Web Sites

I have been making jewellery for about 18 months now and have tended to buy from about 3 websites mainly, have just found this forum today, and wondered where you guys tend to buy your beads/findings etc from online?

Am not sure if I am allowed to post this or not - but I guessI will get a smacked wrist if I am out of order??

I make jewellery and tiaras, and due to having masses of excess materials (Swarovski require a hefty annual spend to keep my account open!) I have opened an online store for all things Swarovski, with a few tiara making bits thrown in!

Its the Unique Beads link in my sig. We add to it every couple of weeks. But if you are looking for something in particular then give us a shout - we want to expand, but there are so many things available, we aren't sure which way to go! Am trying to keep it a bit unusual

.....................and as someone who has spent a small fortune on the things, I can confirm that you won't get 5301 4mm bicones a lot cheaper retail! :) I thought I'd see if you were going to stick around before I said how good your prices were Starstruck! :D

Well Beadsage - now I officially heart you (Oh dear - have been browsing on Etsy too long! LOL!!)

We having been trading for a couple of years now, although very much as a back burner business as my love is actually creating jewellery. My mum came on board almost a year ago and since then we have been gradually building up. Am rather partial to discount codes as well - so if there is somewhere on here that I can post a code for....say...15% off....just point me in the right direction.

Oh and believe me...I'm gonna stick here, like some sticky thing stuck to something sticky that will never lose its stickiness......

I love the pooing horse too much to leave: :horse:

Hi Claire,

I've got a really comprehensive range of Sterling Silver findings, chain and beads. Also stock Gold Fill, as well as Silver Plated and Gold plated

Could be worth a look if you use any of the above
