Spotlighted Items

In response to a customer request, we have added 66 colors of
opaque Japanese 14o/15o Hex seed beads to our website. 

We just received a large shipment of Czech Republic seed beads and
pressed glass.  We will be updating pricing as needed and
will try and increase our categories of beads that appear on our
website as time permits. 

Do you like chain?  Check out our assortment of base metal chain by the foot. 

How about some pretty, tiny little 15o Delica beads.  We have added
these to our standard 11o Delica bead pages where we have the
matching colors to make ordering easier for you.
