Wholesale Beads

Beads, beads and more beads. They are made of glass, plastic, bone, metal and silver. They come in so many shapes and sizes; it would be hard not to find a style you like for your project. The best part is, over the past decade or two, beads are available in glorious quantities, as suppliers of wholesale beads have discovered a profitable, worldwide business.

For example, several merchants in the business of selling wholesale beads also offer jewelry making supplies and accessories that will add to a bead project. Most of these suppliers literally have thousands of different kinds of beads and associated products. Some of the established larger companies even have crafts and art specialists on staff to help with ideas and with cutting glass and metal to your specifications.

Here is an added feature that makes buying wholesale beads a good experience. Many of the beads are manufactured in facilities outside the United States, allowing wholesale beads to come directly to you at the lowest possible cost. In addition, most of these reputable suppliers have significant Web sites and secure shopping services that add the experience of choosing from the thousands of beautiful wholesale beads.

A tip that seems to be in the customer service information of a number of the larger, more established purveyors of wholesale beads: Look for a bead manufacturer/distributor, someone who controls the quality and shape of their own beads. If the supplier does not have their own cutters and factory workers, you may want to ask a few questions about their supply quality and availability.

As with many suppliers of wholesale products, merchants in the wholesale beads business sometimes limit their customers to established craft makers, bead shops, craft supply stores, jewelry designers and artists, retail stores etc. These businesses will generally have to supply business license information and state sales tax information to the distributor of wholesale beads in order to establish an account.

But there are a number of sellers in the wholesale beads business who sell directly to individuals, though these may be more accurately called discount sellers rather than wholesale merchants. It all depends on your definition of wholesale. Look for a straightforward statement such as "prices are for businesses that buy beads in large quantities, for resale." When in doubt, ask.

What types of beads have become available over the years, as manufacturers and suppliers have expanded to meet the demands of the industry? Of course, there are glass beads in numerous shapes, including flowers and geometric shapes. There are foil beads in gold and silver, as well as specialty beads in various shapes, such as seeds and animal shapes. Are you looking for something more natural? Not to worry. Many of the suppliers of wholesale beads have natural stone, bone, horn and fine metals in their inventory, as well as leather and top-quality ceramic beads.

The use of beads for decoration is a centuries-old tradition, extending to nearly every group of people on every continent in the world. What was once a family or tribal custom has become wholesale beads - a major worldwide industry.
