List of my recommended jewellery making suppliers:
Best for: Semi Precious Beads & Genuine Freshwater Pearls. They supply a huge range of semi precious stones and pearls, varying in levels of quality making them accessible for everyone. They are also one of a handful of retailers in the UK that are authorised to sell genuine SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS directly from SWAROVSKI.
They are my absolute favourite bead supplier. I used to work for them years ago so I can honestly say they were a fantastic company
Good to know: If you sign up to their mailing list you will get a discount off your first order. They are also great for seed beaders, they are regularly uploading new designs with instructions
Best for: Their silver findings and chains and finished jewellery. The quality of the findings and chains are phenomenal and their finished pieces such as bracelets and necklaces are so much cheaper to buy from than from a jewellers.
Good to know: They’re set up as a wholesaler but you can buy individual items but it’s more cost efficient to buy in bulk
