I’ve been sent a few more places to get beads from, so I figured I should probably get off my butt and share those! XD
1. InmCrystal.com – The first thing about this place is the vast amount of products they have. They have beads, yes, but they have Swarovski Prisms, which are so hard to find for cheap. This store sells them in bulk for roughly $10 for anywhere between 1-5+, though prices do get more expensive with the higher quality and sizes you go for. Shipping fees are affordable, and they offer insurance on their orders. Shipping sounds like it can take 7-10 days, but that’s not bad at all!
2. Artbeads.com – Another place with a huge inventory of items. You can buy items, including Swarovski elements, in bulk. Their briolette pendants for example are all less than $10 to order. They have 24-hour shipping, free shipping on orders of $10 or more in the U.S., and affordable shipping all-around. Depending on what you pay for shipping, it can be there in a day to 10 days.
3. Limabeads.com – This store has a big inventory as well. You can buy in bulk, but it can get pricey quickly as they sell per strand for things like freshwater pearls, without doing a bulk discount. Potato-sized freshwater pearl strands range from $7 to $23, for example. Shipping is discounted dependingon how much you order and has relatively quick shipping as well.
Hope these help with your bead shopping!
