Jewelry Making Money Savers - Use eBay to Find Cheap Beads



Do you know where to find the best prices for your beads and other jewelry supplies? Like me, I'm sure you have your favorite stores, both offline and online.

In the online world, for beads and parts that are fairly common, there are many wholesale jewelry supply stores where you can find what you are looking for.

However, there are times when you might want to find something that is a little more unusual, or not very popular. Remember that stores mostly focus on selling what is "hot." They need to sell in volume to make money. That means that out of all the possible beads available out there in the world, they can only offer a small percentage of those.

Where do you go to find the unusual stuff, or beads that are no longer being sold by jewelry supply stores? I always try the auction sites, especially eBay since it is the biggest, to see if other jewelry artists are selling off any of their inventory.

If you haven't used eBay before I recommend that you head over there and check it out. There are a ton of beads and other jewelry making supplies being offered at all times on eBay. And eBay can be fun (and a little addictive!) to use since you are bidding against others to try to win what you want to buy.

A word of caution. Make sure you have a good idea what the value is of the parts you are bidding on. Sometimes folks get so caught up in the emotion of the auction process that they lose their common sense and pay way too much for what they want.

Happy searching!

Also, if you want to keep it really simple there is a simple site called the Many Beads Superstore. [http://www.manybeads.com] that takes just the beads category from eBay listings and puts them in one place. You can click on a category you are interested in and see what's being offered, or just enter a search term and see what pops up. It's very convenient and can save you a lot of time and money
