Shop Arts and Craft Stores for
Jewelry Making Supplies

Arts and craft stores are excellent as bead suppliers for buying beads and beading supplies. Find out which ones to shop for your jewelry making supplies.

Here are a few national chains...

  • Dick Blick Art Materials
  • Hobby Lobby
  • JoAnn's Fabric and Craft Stores
  • Michael's Art Supplies

Each of these craft stores have both online stores and brick-and-mortar stores.

Check their online store locator for a location near you.

I frequent Michael's and JoAnn's often. Both have added more jewelry making supplies to their jewelry making sections.
