About

Beads, beads and more beads!

Creating beautiful things is my perpetual passion. Because of this love, every part of the work of building a complete art jewelry supply store – from researching a new line of products, to creating or choosing the perfect items to offer my customers, to seeing what other artists create from my wares – is a joy to me.

My creative specialty is the making of wearable lampwork beads, which I have been doing since 1999, though I’ve been a professional artist for over 25 years. However, I like handling and playing with beads just as much as making them, and I wanted to offer my customers beads and ideas for more jewelry styles, so I chose to turn from full-time lampwork to stocking a wider range of supplies.

Therefore, I’ve branched out my supply shop into a full, ever-changing variety of fresh bead and finding lines. Today, my long-running website enjoys an excellent reputation for selling highest-quality beads, jewelry tools, and other supplies for jewelry makers.

My Czech glass beads and components come from one of the most trusted of traditional bead companies, while my small, precious stocks of Bali Silver and Karen Hill Tribe Silver are imported directly from Indonesia and Thailand. I also offer the best of brass and pewter, completing a wide array of jewelry-making supplies for any jewelry artist’s style and look.

The way the light hits a perfectly-chosen bead is an intensely special feeling, whether my hands are placing it in the finished jewelry piece or another beader is absorbed in the process. I hope that the beading products I offer at Enchanting Beads will help you share that moment of creative fire.

Domestic Shipping (to a USA address):
Standard shipping is via USPS first-class mail. Priority Mail upgrade is available during checkout.

Standard shipping is via USPS First Class Mail International. Most international first class mail has an estimated delivery time of 2-4 weeks. Most international Priority Mail has an estimated delivery time of 7-14 business days. Customs for the receiving country, and/or security inspections in the USA or your country, often cause delays especially near holidays.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Beads are most commonly measured using the metric system. Measurements for the beads are detailed in the description. A USD dime measures 18mm in diameter(across). A USD quarter measures 24mm(almost an inch). So a 2mm bead is really tiny and much smaller than a 12mm(almost 1/2") bead.

Approximate(rounded off) size conversions:
3.2mm = 1/8 inch
4.75mm = 3/16 inch
6.3mm = 1/4 inch
9.5mm = 3/8 inch
12.7mm = 1/2 inch
15.9mm = 5/8 inch
19mm = 3/4 inch
22.2mm = 7/8 inch
25.4mm = 1 inch

About Gauges and Measurement Conversions

Gauge is abbreviated as ga or g. The higher the number the smaller the gauge. The most commonly used jewelry wire gauges are 18-24 gauge. If you are just starting out, those gauges are nice to have on hand. 24ga is smaller than the 18ga. Other gauges are used for jewelry too. Enchanting Beads stocks wire in gauges 10 through 34.
Some common conversions:
18ga ~ 1.149mm (0.04")
20ga ~ 0.812mm (0.03")
22ga ~ 0.644mm ( 0.025")
24ga ~ 0.511mm (0.02")
26ga ~ 0.455mm (0.016")
28ga ~ 0.321mm (0.013")

Shipping to Canada July 2016

There is a possibility of delayed shipments to Canada beginning early July 2016 as a result of an ongoing labor dispute at Canada Post. This disruption will potentially affect any shipment handled by Canada Post. This includes mail sent via the United States Postal Service (USPS) as that mail is transferred to Canada Post of final delivery. Please check with Canada Post for the postal updates.

While Enchanting Beads will continue to ship orders from our Canadian customers, please plan ahead for the possible long delivery delays.
