Welcome to FFM Supplies. It stands for Feathered Friends Mementos which is my official business name. My first shop on etsy is under jinx1764, that was before I took my business name for my web and local jewelry and art store. I've been crafting since I was a small child. I constantly rotate my art interests which include: crochet, knitting, drawing, watercolor, jewelry making, resin, scrapbooking, stamping, cross stitch and whatever else catches my attention.

I also love to shop at estate and garage sales; you never know what you'll find! Since I opened my original business I've decided that I can't keep or use everything I find, so I've decided to pass on some of the great things I save and I do my best to keep my prices low without underpricing myself.

*************GEMSTONE POLICY***************

When I first tried buying gems online I got some real stinkers. Not a happy camper. So I started using my sales tax license to go to the Houston International Gem Show every quarter and buy gem stones personally for my jewelry business.

Then I decided to start buying them in bulk and selling the extra in vintage/supply shop. I decided to break down the strands instead of selling them as is for two reasons:

1) To remove all unusable stones which are of poor quality or broken (there are always some)

2) Price stones based on amount divided by wholesale amount for a starting point, if needed I then separate stones by grade and adjust prices as needed (at this point I also hold back any stones for use in my own jewelry)

So that's why I break down most of my strands and sell by the stone or bulk stones. It's rare to find a strand that doesn't have bad stones in it. That way you know all the stones you get are all usable and what ever grade I've stated. No bad stones from FFM Supplies!
