Beads Direct has been established since 2004 and has grown over the years. 

We started out life as a one stop shop for quality beads and crystals, but as crafting has grown so has our product range. We now stock everything from specialist tools to crystal card kits.

Our mission is to find and supply a whole range of elements including gemstones, crystal, jewellery findings, silver charms and many more, at the best prices from the best suppliers around the world. As jewellery makers too, our buying team are constantly looking to bring our customers something new, special and exciting. Add to that a very talented design team who are constantly coming up with new ideas using new components and innovative techniques to provide inspiration for everyone.

In addition to ranges and products sourced exclusively for us we are privileged to be an “Authorised Retailer” for Swarovski, the Worlds No 1 crystal producer, which we supply in both wholesale and retail packs. Other major brands stocked include BeadalonTohoMiyukiPreciosa, and CzechMates ensuring that we have everything you need all in one place.
