I have been to bead shows, yes, they exist, bead shows actually are a great place to get really great beads at a very low cost, vendors come from around the US, some, this is their lifestyle. So search online, I'm sure there are shows near you! And, remember, bring cash, as some don't take Credit Cards...and really, do you want to give your Credit card information to a vendor with no machine? The machines are becoming more available to us little guys, but they are still pretty pricey and we have to use our phone or other device. Personally, I look at it as taking your Credit Card to a flea market!!..just saying..
These are cast metal beads often adorned in rhinestones, enamel and Austrian Crystals and plated in a variety of metal tones can add a spectacular look to your beading creations with little cost! Taking your great beading ideas to a new level and customer's LOVE them!! Many contain a beautiful vintage bead look, due to the metal tone combination. Vintage style beads are hard to come across, and if originals are very expensive and can be damaged. The beads we offer are rare and hard to find, even for us! Most are designed in house and reproduced to the highest quality. Typically we have over 1000 different designs displayed on our website at any given time. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter as well, it gives you great discount codes, project ideas and a little fun on life (come on, we can't be all business..we are a family run and operated company...let's have some fun!!)! Sometimes it can get quite interesting!
Double strand slider turquoise beads
are so simple to use, be sure to see some of our other lenses that explain more on how to use them. They typically contain 2 holes on each side for stringing, but can contain more. Some have loops for strings and some have holes on the side. Many people even use the intricate ornate desigs within the beads to wire wrap within the design.There is a wide range of slider bead styles, metal tones and stone colors to meet your needs. Some would work great as a focal or pendant, others would look great strung up with some bi-cones . Wire wrap things to them and you have a masterpiece! There are so many options for their use, it's just amazing and beautiful!
We are a family owned and operated company located in the United States. And, the entire family does get involved with the 2 hole slider beads and beading that needs to be done! (Currently, the kitchen table is covered with beads, clasps and findings to make our next launch for the newsletter, tomorrow!!) Our slider bead designs are our passion, but we also carry a long line of fold over magnetic clasps which are amazingly easy to use, and apparently the passion of our clients, as they sell out quickly! Be sure to check out our lens on the foldover magnetic clasps . These clasps are strong, and your car door won't steal your designs right off your wrist. The tops were made thick, so the magnet doesn't affect their use when it comes to your car door, fork, grocery cart (you get the idea).
They can be used in necklace designs, watches, bracelets, so many things! We have even had customers use them for purse closures and doll clothing! We take great pride in our customer base and know many of them and their families through just simple chatting on the phone or e-mail, we are people and we look at our customer's as people as well..not just a number! If you are a regular purchaser, we will know you by name :). We are not only a bead company, we are people that care and are always here to help, whether it be regarding beads or your going through a rough patch in life and just need a friend to listen (who doesn't know anyone or anything that your talking about)..maybe we should start up a therapy phone line as well..lol...but I do care, and typically, I, the owner, answers the phone. I think it's important to know my customers, their personalities and needs!
Often times our customers only think of using our 2 hole slider beads in bracelets and watches, but they can be used for so many other things, one just has to think outside the box a bit. Rings, necklaces, earrings and lancets, along with brow bands for horses have all been things our customers have created. Along with decorating candle holders, liven up their scrapbooks and even decorating their pets, although, not recommend, as these should not be swallowed, it could be dangerous. Hair accessories are another great idea for slider beads, it can take just ten minutes to turn a regular boring bobby pin into something beautiful!
