Shipwreck Beads

One thing I find exceptional about the online bead store Shipwreck Beads is their catalog.

Although it costs $10.00, it is well worth it. And, since they give a $15.00 or $25.00 credit for your next purchase they end up paying you to buy it.

Printed Bead Catalog

What a great resource it is no matter where you shop! I know I like to have the catalog in my hands sometimes to look at the pictures of jewelry and jewelry making supplies on the page.

Sometimes I see something new (jewelry findings, beads or jewelry making tools) I want to work with or I may get inspired looking at the stones near each other.

Unique Beading Supply Offers offers something they call a surprise bag. If I buy a 'surprise' bag, I can use it to try to identify a stone which I may not recognize right away. (Those 'senior moments' you know.)

Anyway, great idea for allowing others to comment on their favorite supplier and thanks for all the work you do to keep your site updated.

I'm just starting in the business and I'm having a heck of a time getting all of the aspects done, especially the web site.

I really find that (of) all the beading sites on the web, yours is the best!

You show simple, straight to the point photos that are EASY to look at. BRAVO!

This site has been so helpful and inspirational to a beginner beader like me.

I have learned so much and appreciate knowing how to make my pieces look really professional.

You have done well!


Thank you for an awesome website, it has been very useful and informative!

I have just started my hobby in jewelry making and whenever I come across a hurdle, your website shows me how to get over it.

Thank you again.
