Best online wholesale bead suppliers

Updated on January 26, 2016

Pandahall

This is my main jewelry supply store. This site has a crazy amount of supplies I could spend days just looking at their inventory. You can buy beads from all sorts of different categories and materials. They have a wide range from lampwork, to acrylic, to gemstones. Their prices are crazy low and affordable only drawback is their shipping is a little bit expensive. Though some of their beads you can order in several hundred of nice glass beads for under five dollars. Not only does this site sell beads but also jewelry findings, chain, wire, string, glues, cabachons, and wholesale already made jewelry. I would rate this site a 7.5/10 because their shipping is high to my location.

Firemountaingems

This site has thousands of different items in their inventory, and though the name is firemountaingems they sell so much more than gems. This site has many different categories like the site listed above you can shop not only beads but findings, chain, wire, stringing materials, etc. Their prices are a bit higher than the site listed above but they do accept all major credit cards as well as paypal accounts. You can shop most major jewelry suppliers, such as czech and swarovski crystal. You can also shop based off what material, shape, size, etc you are looking for and you can find just about anything you need for jewelry making. They also allow you to shop holiday specific beads and they have a finished jewelry section as well. I would mark this site a 8.5/10 because their prices are a bit higher than what I prefer from a wholesale site but their shipping is relatively cheap and they have a very good variety.

beadsinbulk

This site has a wide variety of different beads and you can buy wires and chains on this site. The amount of findings they have available is a little low whenever I order from this site I only buy beads usually and get my findings elsewhere. You can narrow your search results down by many specifics to find just what you need. They have good prices and a wide range of colors, and kinds of glass. You can also buy acrylic and other materials of beads. I would rate this site a 6/10 because their prices are good, but they don't carry many findings and their variety is a bit lower than the other sites that I normally shop from.

Beadsandpieces

This site has a HUGE variety of inventory. I have not personally ordered from this site yet but I fully intend to. They have an amazing amount of inventory for jewelry making. Their supplies range from different mediums of beads, different findings, chains, wires, tools, lace, ribbons, etc. Their prices are very fair, you can order in as many or as little beads as you want and the more you buy the more discounted they become. They have beautiful pendants and unique bead styles. You can't shop individual brands but you can shop by medium, size, hole size, etc. I haven't personally ordered from this site as I mentioned earlier but based off what I have heard, their prices, and the huge amount of inventory they carry I would rate this site a 8/10

Jewelrysupply

This site has a huge variety of supplies not just jewelry making supplies but packaging, and display as well. I have not personally ordered from this site either but I also fully intend to because I really enjoy their packaging, and their displays. They also carry some very unique findings that I would love to incorporate in my jewelry. This site you can easily search for specific things you need. You can also search for specific brands as well. They don't carry many specific brands but they do carry some of the more popular like swarovski and czech. I haven't ordered from them so I'm not too sure about their shipping rates but they do have free shipping on orders over 60$. They also have a section for sheet metals for people who make bangles or do hand stamping. This site I would rate a 7/10 because of their free shipping over 60$ their large amount of inventory, and their fair prices.

Cherrytreebeads

This site has probably the most inventory out of all the other sites on this list. They have beads, focal points, findings, tools and supplies, packaging, display, and so much more. This site has a crazy amount of variety in their inventory. Their amount of unique and customizable pieces is just amazing. They have fast and pretty fairly priced shipping. Their prices are pretty fair though it's one of the more costly sites on their list. They make up for being more expensive in the HUGE amount of inventory they have. They offer many bulk packages which is really nice. I would rate this site a 7.5/10 because of their high prices but the crazy inventory they have totally makes up for it!

beadaholique

This site has a huge amount of inventory and honestly one of the main reasons I like it is because their site is so pretty! But their inventory ranges from beads to findings, to clasps, to strings, to pendants and so much more. I have ordered from this site several time and they ship in a timely manner you get you supplies pretty quickly and their shipping is pretty cheap. They offer beads from a pretty good variety of different companies, (czech, swarovski, vintaj, etc.) They also offer a large variety of wholesale already made jewelry for people who like that. They offer instructional videos directly on their website and read through tutorials. This site I would rate a 8/10 beacause their prices aren't high but you can find lower in other places. They also offer fair shipping and a good variety.
