Review: An easy to navigate site with some beautiful beads. Also stocks a nice selection of vermeil beads and findings.
Recommendation: A good selection of Swarovski crystal, and I have always received deliveries within 2 days.
Recommendation: Primarily a gemstone and gem-polishing company, but they have a wide range of proper jewellers' tools at very good prices, as well as a limited range of findings & settings.
Recommendation: A massive selection of cabochons from 4mm up and in loads of shapes. Great selection and very good service. As well as cabochons you'll find a selection of bead, findings, tools and more on this easy to navigate site.
Recommendation: If you are prepared to buy wholesale (minimum £75 excluding VAT), it's a good place to buy from online. They participate at lots of UK bead shows.
