|From the Beading Daily Facebook Page|
Have you broken this particular New Year's resolution yet? No? Well, let us be enablers then. We've compiled a list of some of our favorite
dealers suppliers for assembling our handmade components into finished jewelry.
Rio Grande: We love the one stop shopping and the large selection of tools and supplies at Rio. Shipping is very quick and the customer service is excellent.
Monsterslayer: Great source of wire and sheet metal.
Arte Bella Surplus: Melissa loves to shop here for Czech glass
Fivesisters: Another great shop for Czech glass.
Beads of Cambay and Dakota: Jenny loves to buy gemstones from these two shops because the quality is very reliable and they have a variety of cuts and shapes of stones.
Primitive Earth Beads: Diana says she shops for chain from this online supplier.
Fusion Beads: Great for buying small quantities when you need just enough to finish a project.
Hands of the Hills: Great selection of ethnic beads.
Rings & Things: a little bit of everything including gems, chain, findings
Unkamen Supplies: Kristi likes to buy jump rings and niobium ear wires from this shop on etsy.
Smitten Beads: Joanne loves this UK based shop, especially for the wooden beads
Cookson Gold: Joanne jokingly (I think...) said she spends a few dollars each month at this shop.
Nunn Design: According to Jenny, Nunn Design offers excellent quality base metal chains and bezels with attractive antiqued finishes that last. The bezels are heavy, sturdy, and don't look cheap with a wide variety of bezel shapes and sizes. Bonus...the minimum wholesale order is low.
Yuki Designs: This Etsy shop, which is based in Montreal, is a favorite of both Kristi and Linda.
Hope you've found some new favorites...I have. Which means I will probably be spending money I swore I wouldn't. Happy shopping and definitely tell us about some of your favorite supply shops in the comments and why they are your favorites.
