    By what you are asking for, not anywhere on this forum.
    You have posted the same thing in the "Introduce yourself" section.

    If ebay is too expensive for costume jewellery for you, then you are not going to get anything.

    Oh dear - I think we need to give mason a break - they're not looking for cheap wholesale stuff to resell, but to use as components in other handcrafted items. I can think of very few crafts that don't use some raw materials, and this is no different.

    For mason - I think you need to be looking at aliexpress or alibaba. It will take a bit of searching, but that's where a lot of stuff you're seeing on ebay stuff will be from too. You may find you're looking at minimum quantities to get better prices, but that should work for you.

    I'm with MizGeorge, I wasn't confused at all! She clearly stated she was looking for components to use in things she makes herself.

    Try Etsy - many Etsy sellers are suppliers, there are hoards of them and they often have more unique items available that you can't find on eBay, the prices tend to be pretty reasonable too. I often buy supplies from Etsy sellers rather than eBay.

    Hallelujah- thank you 😀 at last someone who gets my point. Thank you so much, I was beginning to feel somewhat bullied lol. Thought a crafting forum was supposed to be fun - for people who shared a similar passion, but needed a little direction along the way. Thank you to those who gave positive advice, even when some did not initially.

    Hi Mason, just the way it read, no problem, we don't allow bullying so don't worry, I'm sure it wasn't intentional.
    If you have any thing to ask in future, if you aren't sure, pop it in "General" or "Can you help" which are more general but will still be seen.

    Dave.

    Just a thought, have you tried charity shops?...car boot sales, outdoor flea markets, Jumble sales......?
