Hi. I'm sorry. I rarely ever update this resource guide anymore but didn't want to remove it in case I wanted to reference something I have out here. When I came out here a year or so ago to move the lists into a facebook group, I noticed it was gone. I have no clue why, how or when that happened. Unfortunately I didn't have a backup either. It's gone. And it was a good list, too. :(

I can't find your list of online bead sellers. It looks like it should be on the page named "Buying Beads Online," but the section where they should be listed states "To help protect the security of information you enter into this website, the publisher of this content does not allow it to be displayed in a frame." Is there a way that I can actually see the list? I have joined, but will probably delete my membership if I can't read any of your content. Thanks for your help.

Hi i cant seem to find yourbonline bead store database liscan you teĺl me how to find itb

This is a great resource. Thanks for taking the time to put it together. Another great online store for high quality gold-filled and silver beads, crimps, connectors, clasps, and chains is Another great thing about Plazko is the free worldwide shipping! Happy beading.

Hmmm. I belong to a thriving one locally that was created many years ago by 8 women and there are over 240 of us now! Do you know people who bead? Is there a bead store near you that you could check with? Are you on Facebook? There are a bunch of groups on Facebook dedicated to making jewelry of all types. Look for Jewelry Makers and Bead Lovers, that's a really nice one. There are others too. You may be able to connect with people locally that way. You could always try Craigs List, too. Our group meets at a library - if your local library has a message board maybe you could post a flyer on it looking for other beaders?

I live in upstate New York. The winters are long and perfect for beaders to stay indoors and feed their creativity. I am looking to join and/or create a beading group. Not sure what to do next. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello I would like to find out how to list my site. I tried and found a couple dead ( craft sites) so I thought I would contact you. I have a brick and mortar store in Walpole MA. we have been around almost 4 years and growing all the time. I have been building a new online version of our store. the store is open for business and we will continue to add product. Please take a look and see if its a good fit for your site. If I should add it myself just let me know where to look and what to do thanks so much for your time

New online bead store by Lydia MayLydia May, 06 Oct 2014 11:26 wholesale prices and you don't have to buy bulk ;)

If you like good quality beads and not the cheap ones, you can try Fine Gems Canada in Montreal Canada.
They have a large selection of semi-precious beads and the customer service is pretty good. I don't know if they ship to the united states or not but you can take a look at their website by making a search on Fine Gems Canada

Hi Anna,

Thank you so much for your nice comments! I have wanted to update this resource for a while with new things I've come across, but just have not had the time. Between making jewelry, trying to sell jewelry and working a full-time job (and an addiction to Pinterest) at the same time, making jewelry usually wins out over anything else so I never get around to maintaining this like I had hoped.

I hope the rain stopped and you had a great time camping. But if not, I hope you found a lot of great beading info here or just on the web. :)

And I've added your shop to the list!

Thanks again,

I must have been browsing the internet with my eyes closed not to have seen this amazing beading resource!

I own Big Bead Little Bead - an online bead and jewellery making supplies shop based in the UK and I like to think we have put together a few guides worthy of note ( /guides_and_information/index.php ) but just not to this degree!

I'm off camping this weekend and rain is forecast so plenty of time to have a good look around with the iPad! Expect a link exchange request when I get back as I am sure our customers would be interested in following this wiki.

All the best Anna
