Here in Funky Pretty Bead Land you will find an inspiring selection of jewelry making supplies. Glass beads, gemstone beads and Semi-Precious beads from all over the world. I carry a large selection of "cultured" sea glass beads.
I carry quality findings made of silver gold fill, copper and niobium. Some are manufactured by the best companies I know of and some are handmade by your truly.

Beads are RAW MATERIALS waiting to be put in just the perfect spot.
A friend of mine one said "Everything in the right context"..... or something like that. Truly, I don't recall her exact words but as I designed jewelry I took that as a challenge. To take any bead, even a seemingly plain one, and find just the right place for it where is makes perfect sense.

I sell a lot of beads here at Funky Pretty Beads that are awesome simply as objects and then I also sell more basic bead elements. Every design needs the background (basic) beads to be still and quiet in the background so that the focal parts can shine. These are the beads that we often don't think about when we go to buy our beads, but having them at hand when designing is crucial to create successful designs.
My intention is to inspire you and help you create beautiful designs. Inspiration is a wonderful thing. It makes the adrenalin flow. Please be in touch with questions. The best part of my job is making you bead happy.

Many of my items have a tiered pricing system so the larger the quantity the less each bead costs. A great deal for those of you who need larger quantities. I am slowly converting a lot of listings to tier pricing.

If you would like to be on my mailing list for monthly sales please be in touch.

I regularly add new beads. I think it's an addiction. The pile to photograph and post never seems to get smaller..... so check in often.
Have fun!
Be inspired! Live. Love. Be. Bead.

About

Color. Shape. Simplicity.

Beads. They are colorful, touchable, sensual and tactile little sculptures unto themselves. They come from all over the world. They reach out and want to be touched, drawing you in somewhat unexpectedly.

I started my bead shop on Etsy after designing and manufacturing jewelry for many years. Now instead of designing jewelry I enjoy taking beautiful images of my beads and sending them on to happy customers.

I love being here on Etsy selling you beads. I have realized that my job is making people happy. How cool is that? I have SO much fun putting together your orders. You see, I have...... lots of beads hanging around. AND I know what it's like to be designing jewelry. You need LOTS of beads. I'm a visual person and I'm betting you are too.)The more you have the more options you can see.
SO.... as long as you are ordering a few different beads, I love to add related beads and colors to give you choices and ideas. Often I try to look and see what your favorite are so I know more of what you like. (and so many of you keep them hidden :o(

So.... have fun. Enjoy the color experience. Ask questions if you need help. I love to assist you.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Most Glass beads are available for discounted bulk pricing by special order. This may mean different quantities for different types of beads. Typically Czech glass bead minimum bulk order is 200 beads, same bead, same color.

I do offer tiered pricing on MANY items. This means that items are already discounted for larger amounts. This is the case for all items that say CHOOSE AMOUNT in the title.

At this time I can not offer bulk prices on gemstone beads.

What does CHOOSE AMOUNT mean?

On many items I offer tiered pricing levels which means that the more you purchase of one item the less you will pay. This is designed for those of you who need larger quantities because you are re-selling your jewelry.
In these cases there are two dropdown menus that you will need to use. The one on top says Quantity. The dropdown menu below that will be where you choose your price level. You can of course choose more than 1 quantity of any tiered level to get exactly what you need.
