About WildwoodBeadCompany

Sales 2,871
On Etsy since 2010

I love ART, babies, dogs, beads, wire, metal and leather.

Mom had flair, she was an artist and she loved to sing. She has always been my inspiration and so I am a maker. My most favorite thing is stone beads. I've been putting rocks in my pocket since I could walk and stringing beads since before I was a teenager and I still love doing both. At the risk of dating myself, I used to string love beads and sell them on Cape Cod.
I put crafty things aside when I started my family. I raised 5 daughters and one son. We would have jewelry making parties and other creative activities while they were growing up, my favorite was playing with beads and leather, and though we always had fun there was no real spark for the girls. Sarah was the exception, she caught the bead bug. She's a design genius with eclectic flair, wire worker, bead junkie and teacher. Check her out at https://www.facebook.com/Gypsyadornment or
When we closed our "Downeast Sticks'n Stones Bead Shop" we opened this etsy store, Wildwood Bead Company suits me better. We had a brick and mortar shop in Brewer Maine for just over 8 years, it was wonderful to serve the community in a creative way with my daughters Jen and Sarah and my sister Laura. We had so much fun with open studio and all kinds of beading classes and I felt blessed to meet so many wonderful and talented people. I hope you can find what you are looking for, if not, you can always convo me and I'll let you know what is possible.
I know there are many bead and jewelry making suppliers to choose from so I thank you in advance for your support.
I wish you Peace and Bead Happy!

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
All orders are packaged carefully to prevent damage in shipping!
Shipping cost includes a much reduced rate for multiple items!

My current order processing time is average 1-3 days. Order processing time starts when I receive payment notification of sale, and excludes Sundays. I ship via USPS to keep our (both yours and mine) costs to a minimum. If you purchase multiple items and your package is over 1 pound I will automatically upgrade to Priority Flat Rate service, under 1 pound I refund the shipping overages more than $1. If you prefer a refund to priority shipping just let me know when you check out. All packages are insured.

Delivery can take an average of three days to 1 week within the US including Hawaii. These are estimates based on experience and can occasionally be longer during peak shipping periods, notably holidays and possibly weather.

SHIPPING ADDRESS: I will ship to your Etsy address so please make sure it is correct before placing your order. Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
We seek out and practice fair trade. Our corals are responsibly harvested and our metals are nickel free, lead free and more recently cadmium free. In the near future we will be listing vintage metal components and as such can only disclose what information is given us. All information is in each individual listing.
To your advantage, we are very picky. These items will be clearly labeled.

If you have any questions please message me anytime. I check my etsy shop at least twice a day and can be found listing new items regularly,

Looking for bulk? I am happy to work with you.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I am happy to work with you. Please message and let me know your requirements and I will respond in kind.

Are your metal products safe?

This is a good question and important to me. All of our metals are nickel, lead and cadmium free and as such allergic free for most people. If you have severe allergies I would suggest that niobium or titanium offers hypoallergenic qualities for even the most sensitive people.
