About

Just on a bead adventure, hunting the best deals for you and me. If I bought it at a good price, why can't you too...

Have been designing jewelry on and off since the late 1980's. Acquired many great suppliers and obtained great deals on beads. When I moved from L.A., California to Ft.Worth, Texas all of a sudden it was a struggle to find beads. Could not believe how hard it was to find good beads at a decent price. If I was having this hard of a time, realized many other people are also. Some people only have the option to go to the big chain places like Michael's, JoAnn or Hobby Lobby. That is unless you buy huge quantity and wait a long time for beads to be mailed to you. So I put together my list of suppliers and started stocking up inventory and thus began Beads2string in 2006.

My goal for the store is to provide you with good quality beads at reasonable prices to allow you to make a GREAT profit. Here is to finding many more buried treasures for you.

Anyone can string beads, it takes a true artist to create the design. ~Beads2string

Additional policies and FAQs
As for the grades of Gemstones, they will be usually B or C grade. When I get A grade I will put it as such in the listing. Will also provide any clarity or inclusions that I can see. I do not include grades within the listing as each manufacturer has their own grading system, there is not a universal grading system for gemstone beads below the luxe AAA grade precious gemstones. If you are worried about the price vs. quality, please keep in mind most of the Gemstones are below retail costs. The gemstone pictured is for reference and may not be the exact one shipped to you; therefore, the color of the stone may be darker/lighter.

"Hand cut in India"
For those gemstones that are hand cut in India, they are beautiful beads for that price as can be seen by the store's feedback. They may not be perfectly round and can range from the size listed to .5mm under or over that size. From a distance they look beautiful and the sizing or cut may not be that noticeable. They are indeed not Luxe gems (AAA grade) or the price would be 300-500% higher. I have a supplier that gives me a great price for the amount I buy and am just passing the great price on to you.

I am not a gemoligist and as such provide the known name for beads/stones/crystals and not the mineral it is. If you are not aware that there are only 2 types of real Jade, then please be advised, when you see 'Jade' on the listing it is actually a type of Serpentine gemstone which is still beautiful.
