Hey beaders!

I usually get my beads at a local beading store but I am very excited to be teaching a beading class to kids this summer so i was looking to get my supplies off a beading website. I did a google search which left me totally overwhelmed. Was wondering what you consider to be the best beading websites to order from in terms of quality and affordable/reasonable pricing. Having a catalog is a plus but not required. Thanks!

It depends a little on the continent, as the shipping is so much higher from continent to continent, and you can also risk the package getting stuck in customs.

I live in Europe, and http://www.beadsdirect.co.uk/ is my favourite supplier.

I've ordered from Goody Beads, www.goodybeads.com, and Art Beads, www.artbeads.com, though Fire Mountain and Rio Grande are also well known and respected.

It all depends.  I usually get things from http://rings-things.com/  I also go to their traveling bead shows when I can.

There is also http://creative-wholesale.com/

When in doubt, use more glue!

Personally I like to shop at car boots, local craft stalls and hunt around the backstreets for theat elusive beady heaven.  Roll Eyes But http://www.jewelrysupply.com/ seem to be the biggest on the internet if you need to order from a distance.
