About Beads Direct
Born out of a passion to source the very best components, for you to make beautiful handmade jewellery.
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 Beadalon, Toho, Miyuki, Preciosa, and Czechmates ensuring that we have everything you need all in one place.
“Beads Direct is the only place to get jewellery making supplies that are good
quality and beautiful to use. Very lovely stuff.”

Whilst we are serious about our business we also recognise that it needs to be fun and social. With over 40,000 dedicated beaders and jewellery makers, our facebook page is a great way of meeting lots of like minded people, to share ideas, find inspiration, and have some fun with regular competitions. Our blog also keeps you up to date with all the latest news.
Over 100 “How to” YouTube videos on our Beads Direct channel are another great way to help perfect your skills and techniques whilst relaxing in the comfort of your armchair at home. Why not subscribe to receive our emails which include “Take a Make Break”, our regular weekly Sunday video feature? The videos are easy to follow demonstrations of a design featuring new products, and provide some inspiration and well deserved “you time” at the end of a busy week.
The recent introduction of Shine Online, our monthly online magazine, is now sent out free to all our e mail subscribers. It’s a great way of catching up on all the latest news, new products, customer designs and competitions, with features on what’s on trend in the world of jewellery making and beading.
