1st Week in Business

I officially launched my beads and findings supply side to my business on Monday and so far I have had four orders, which isn't too bad in my opinion! Sold a few Vintaj Natural Brass items and the customer was really pleased with them and will be coming back for more! 

I am already out of stock of these gorgeous flourish petal bead caps, which open up and look beautiful wrapped around beads, or objects!

At the moment I have a wider selection of findings then I do beads but eventually I'd like to cater for everyone and stock all the popular beads on the market, especially Swarovski crystal. 

I'm going to start working on my kit boxes and project ideas soon, need to get all these ideas in my head into action so theres more on the website for everyone to enjoy!

We're Open for Business! Fabulous Findings

I've been missing in blog action for a while now as every minute of spare time I've had I have been adapting my website to an online beads and findings shop!
I had been thinking of it for a while, I absolutely love getting a jewellery supply order but find it hard work to get the best deals as prices vary so much for the same items across all my favourite suppliers, so... I thought why don't I supply everything and make all the prices reasonable for everything! And also source some different findings and have a good stock of them rather then the odd piece and then I found Vintaj Natural Brass and fell in love! They accepted me to buy wholesale from them, so I placed a huge order and now it is all in my shop for everyone to buy!!


I also have a nice range of antiqued brass and antiqued silver, sterling silver, silver and gold plated and lots of lovely beads - shell beads, mother of pearl, wood, glass beads and swarovski crystals.

I have found a good wholesale supplier of Swarovski crystals and wire so once my shop is making more money I will invest in more crystals and wire.

I would like to cater for everyone, so if you are interested in buying from my shop, let me know if there is something that you buy regularly and I'll look into stocking it for you, cheaper then where you currently buy it from! Leave suggestions in my comment box of email

Delivery is FREE for UK orders over £50!!

New Venture with Beads & Findings

For the last few weeks I have been working hard on starting a beads and findings supply side to my jewellery making business. It look alot of research and a good business plan but I think I have found a little niche in the huge market!

Recently I have been using antique copper for my jewellery making and have found it slightly difficult to find a supplier who sells a good range at a decent cost so I end up buying bits and pieces all over the place. Because of this I decided it might be a good idea to stock and supply it all myself! After a bit of research I found a beautiful website called Vintaj Natural Brass Co who design and make eco friendly jewellery findings and embellishments in the USA, they also sell wholesale so I applied and was accepted to buy from them! I really can't wait to receive my package from them.

While waiting for my Vintaj and other big wholesale order I have been working on my website to turn it into a online mail order shop, it's been coming along nicely but there is still lots to do.

I have also set up a subscription newsletter which I am going to send out once a month with all my new products featured and any promotional codes or sales I'll be doing. If you would like to be one of the first to find out when my site is to be launched and receive my launch party promotional code then please sign up to my newsletter below!
