About

I love Beads, gemstones, corals, metals, brass and coppers, Tribal, nepalese, bone, fancy gems, anything that sparkles will catch my eye like a magpie .

My favorite day is going on a Buying Trip for new beads. Wake up early and hit the road with my suitcase and my snack.. I buy beads in bulk at wholesale prices. I, then, pass this savings on to you. This way we both benefit. I get to go shopping and you get a great price!

I have a surplus of thousands of beads since I buy in bulk, but come on, who really needs two hundred of each style of clasp in every color just cus it was on sale???Well, I confess, I do go a bit crazy. Then I found Etsy! Now, I have a place to sell all those lovely things I like to buy... then I get to buy more!! I love the hunt.. Finding things I think others will love to use in their designs. I only pick quality materials that I would use in my own designs for my projects for my customers.
Highly plated, detailed, polished pieces that hold up over time. If I have found the odd style or piece that isnt up to par, I ' ve chucked the whole lot of them at my expense.

( two in the 6 years I ve been doing this! so I think I ve done pretty well!)
