Swarovski crystals are not cheap. I am very well aware of this. However, I am looking for the most inexpensive place to buy them. The cheapest place near where I live is Hobby Lobby, where a strand of 15 bicone crystals goes for about $6. Does anyone know of a place where they are not quite as expensive?

I only get from Hobby Lobby if they are 50% off and I need a certain color right then.  I've had lots of luck on ebay.  You have to shop around a little bit.  Usually these sellers are overseas, and... I try to do a trial run with them before making any big group purchases.  Some offer free shipping.  I've looked for gemstones and crystals this way and it seems to be a total hit or miss.  But once you order once, you can get a feel for what quality their supplies are really like.

I was going to suggesting Ebay too. I was just in there and there are some good deals. The best ones are the ones you have to bid on. I think the best ones are the ones that don't have any bids at all and have the least amount of time left to bid. Like 5 minutes left. But you should offer a decent bid.

Hi! Im not sure where exactly would be the cheapest place to buy them but I like to purchase from fusionbeads.com because you can pay for each bead, you buy what you need and dont need to pay shipping; my experience with them has been great.  Hope this helps! Cheesy

I get mine from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads.  I won't buy them anywhere else unless they're on sale.

Fusionbeads.com is great!  They have free shipping no matter the size of your order, they ship quickly, and I've never had any problems with any order.  Plus they have an amazing amount of beads of all kinds, findings, inspirations page.  I got to go to their store in Seattle last year, and it was even more amazing, plus the staff are super knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend Fusion Beads!

Fire Mountain is having a sale on TONS of Swarovski crystals right now.  I just got a pack of 12 for $1.50 (normally $2.60)
