Buying bead and jewelry supplies can get out of hand quite quickly. Ask me, I know. Have you ever gone to a bead store to "just look around"? Yeah, me too. I left with a gemstone doughnut, a watch face, some Swarovski crystals, lots of seed beads, a dichroic cabochon, some Bali beads, Beadsmith Fireline, a tube of G-S Hypo Cement, and a package of Bead Stoppers (why didn't I think of inventing that).
I know what you're thinking! I should have bought that stuff from a catalog and saved a bunch of money. Well, most of the time I do order my supplies through catalogs and online stores. But sometimes you just have to go to the bead store or a bead show.
Good Will stores and other second hand stores are a great place to find costume jewelry and antique jewelry. I've been known to take old necklaces apart and use the pieces to make new, one-of-a-kind creations. I'm sure you've done this too.
In this section of the site I will be exploring types of
beads and shapes, wire types, metal used in jewelry making, buying
online, buying wholesale, and much more.
