I’ve been jewelry creating for many years. I’ve collected a substantial hoard of beads and jewelry findings along the way. I don’t remember exactly which shop I acquired a specific bead at, but I do know all the places I purchase jewelry supplies. This post is NOT sponsored by anyone. This is just little ol’ me sharing my little ol’ shopping with you.
There are 2 online sources that I’ve used.
- Fire Mountain Gems has the best quality jewelry findings that I’ve found. Especially crimp beads, crimp covers, jump rings and headpins. I’ve used findings from several local craft stores, but the quality isn’t there.
- Artbeads is another online shop that I’ve used for seed beads. They have a great selection of brands and colors.
I also use several hobby shops. The chain stores I use are Hobby Lobby and Michael’s. The ones that are only locally known, carry beads and supplies that can’t be found online. So sorry about that.
I haven’t tried out all the sources for jewelry making. If you’ve found a source to purchase jewelry supplies that you like, please share it with us in the comments.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
