    Default Who to buy from?

    I have some lovely bits and pieces from The Craft Box that can be made into necklaces etc but have no idea where to source the necklace bits from ( not expensive as these will be stocking filler type gifts) so would be grateful for any advice please.

    Would think eBay would be as good as any PP, or maybe a starter kit from one of the bead companies?

    They are one of the sites I have bookmarked. Was hoping someone might have direct positive feedback on somewhere.

    My daughter-in-law buys from The Jewellery Maker Channel and goes for the natural stones. Their p&p is one price all day. She thinks they are the sister channel to Gems. My son does buy her natural stones, silver chains, links etc., from China on eBay which do take a while to arrive.

    I've used eBay quite a lot. Do be careful though as a lot of the companies are in China, so you could be waiting a few weeks. Having said that I have been waiting three weeks for something I ordered from a company here in the UK (via Amazon) and it still hasn't arrived. I have now contacted the seller. I don't want a refund, I just want my boooook. :(

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    The bead shop in Afflecks in Manchester have a website, https://www.the-beadshop.co.uk
    I often go in the shop as they have a good selection of beads and findings and the quality is good usually, never ordered from the website, the postage seems reasonable though.
