Hi all!

I am new here and want so much to learn to make jewelry.  Can anyone recommend online stores to buy supplies, beads, findings, wire, etc?

I went into the local craft stores with a list from books I have here and had a hard time finding the items needed.  Thank you for your assistance.

I like http://www.artbeads.com/ too.  http://www.fusionbeads.com/ is my favorite.  Both of these have free shipping and no minimum order.  The shipping is faster at Fusionbeads.com and  in most cases they let you order the exact # of beads you need.  http://www.beadaholique.com/ is good too and their shipping charges are reasonable.

I find that for the things I usually buy (firepolished beads, silver beads & wire) Fire Mountain tends to be more on the expensive side.  They do have good customer service, though.

I'd also recommend artbeads and fusionbeads. Accessoriessusan.co m has a lot of vintage stuff, and she also has no shipping and no minimum order.
Customer service at all 3 places is great. In fact, I just had an instance where I ordered 3 clasps from artbeads, and they only sent 1. I called CS, and even though I told them there was no hurry, they sent the other two priority mail (4.59 extra cost for them!). I was really impressed.

I second Fire Mountain. It's the only one I've ever used for buying online, but I really love them.

I, however, am excited to try some of these with free shipping... :p
