If you enjoy making your own jewelry, you'll love this company. No matter whether you want to browse through their large catalogue, or check their on-line offerings, you'll be able to find thousands of different beads, gemstones, cabochons, silver and pewter charms, belt buckles, and individually-mounted gem findings that you can assemble together for your own custom-designed bracelet or necklace. In addition, you can find a huge selection of ready-made silver jewelry, (with or without semi-precious gems) at a quarter or a third of the cost that you would pay if you bought the item in a store. These ready-made pieces include pendants, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. The only downside, is that the rings only come in one size, varying around a size 7, so you might need to have it sized by a jeweler later, if you take a smaller size.
If you'd like to make your own necklace, but don't know where to start, there are directions for several easy-to-follow projects included in each catalogue, and these projects are also easily accessed on their website, too.
The company has many unique items, such as some silver hand-crafted Bali and Indian beads, as well as unique gift items, such as jeweled pewter trinket boxes, hand-made mirrors, flutes, and carved semi-precious stone statuettes.
The beads are available in a wide array of shapes, sizes and materials. The semi-precious gem beads are listed in alphabetical order in the catalogue, so you can easy find amber, amethyst, carnelian, garnet, lapis, malachite, obsidian, etc, There's a great chart, too, showing each bead size, i.e., 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, etc. There's also Swarovski crystal, glass Czech beads, and seed beads as well, plus whatever findings you need to complete your project, such as crimp beads, jump rings, clasps, etc.
The prices are very reasonable, and the staff members are very friendly. Before placing your order by mail, please call their toll-free number, and they will be able to confirm the shipping charges, which are also very reasonable. The orders arrive promptly, and they always include a free gift, such as a pin or power bracelet, etc.
