Monday April 21: Looking for Beads??
Wondering where I get all of my great beads? I thought I'd post about all my favorite bead suppliers today.
I get my supplies from many different places on Etsy, and the web.
If you're looking for seed beads, check out Beadwright on Etsy. This shop has lots of different colors, and also has faceted charlottes!! You get a TON of beads, for an excellent price!
Madge the Owl, Old School Acres
Madge needs a home! Go buy her
Looking for vintage beads, lucite and glass? Check out Sunyno on Etsy. This shop is based in the Netherlands, but they have the best selection and prices I've seen on the web so far! Excellent communication and customer service keeps me coming back time and time again. Also Blacksheep Beads can't be beat for vintage finds. And the shipping is lightning fast!
Gemstones!! I love ordering from an online company called Beads on Sale. They offer great prices and their gems are Top Notch! Another great online store is LimaBeads. They have lots of semi-precious gems and offer sales weekly! Etsy sellers that rocck for gems are: TheBeadyEye, YadanaBeads, PaintedPinochle, and OllieandJo
just to name a few!! ;)
I get my Vintaj Brass Co. supplies from FusionBeads. They offer free shipping and always have the newest brass findings. They also have a wide selection of most everything else jewelry related- but gems only come in round shapes.
Lampwork glass- There are thousands of talented lampwork artists online, but my absolute favorites are TheOrangeBell, StudioRent, and GuyMelamed! Their glass just can't be beat. And they have to be the nicest people EVER! Love them!
Looking for Karen Hill Tribe silver? Don't look anywhere but Shiana! They have an awesome website, and excellent selection! Their prices are really affordable, and the shipping is minimal.
Silver Charms!? Gotta check out Hip Chick Beads! Cute little charms for any piece of jewelry. Huge selection, and fast shipping! They also carry Hip Chick Beads silver at FusionBeads!
I hope I didn't forget too many- if you know of any great suppliers that I don't, leave a comment!! I'm always looking for new and different jewelry elements.
Have a great Monday!
