UK Beaders

Help support UK Beaders

It's thanks to our members and supporters that UK Beaders continues to thrive and grow.

This site is completely free to everyone (companies don't pay to have their site listed), so to help raise funds to cover running costs I have been working on lots of great ideas!
Even if you don't have any pennies to spare I have hit upon some great ways you can raise funds for us - totally free, at the click of a mouse! And of course it's your participation that keeps our community together, so please spare a moment to find out how you can join in and help spread the word about how fabulous UK Beaders is! 

If you are making a payment or donation to UK Beaders you can use the PayPal buttons or by use the Contact button if you'd like to pay by another method.

If you would like to pay for more than 1 service/product please use the Contact button to request a combined invoice.

Buy a UK Beaders keyring

These are a very limited edition, with a total of just 50 of these keyrings available. Each one has been designed and crafted by me and they come in a choice of 4 designs!

These black & white, and butterfly themed keyrings each feature a fab beader themed pewter charm, a UK Beaders ribbon, and some lovely beads!

Available for just £4.50 each inclusive of postage. All profits raised from the sale of these keyrings will go towards the site and forum running costs.

Buy a UK Beaders magnet

Here's a sample of what you will receive....

These glossy magnets were professionally printed and will make a fab addition to your fridge (or wherever else you would like to put them)!

The magnets cost just £1.50 each (inc p&p). Discount available to anyone (mad enough) who wants to order 5 or more in one go!

Spread the word - UK Beaders business cards and tags

You can help spread the word about UK Beaders  to other beaders and jewellery designers in your area. Or if you are a bead shop owner or lampworker to your customers even! (These cards are not aimed at jewellery buying customers but at other beaders/designers).

For bead shop owners we also have tags with the UK Beaders site address on, which are small enough to pop into bags of beads, or can be stapled to receipts, popped in books or whatever other uses you can find for them.

To receive your UK Beaders cards and/or tags simply send me an SAE. Please complete the contact form stating how many cards or tags you would like (general maximum of 25 of each more available by arrangement) and I will give you the address for your SAE. Or if you prefer you can make a donation by PayPal to cover the postage costs  (don't forget to include a message with your name and address in) to receive your cards.
