Seed Beads - Essential Supplies For Any Beading Project



Seed Beads are so versatile, making them essential beading supplies to almost every beading project. These tiny glass beads come in a myriad of colors and are usually AB coated or lustred. They are cushion shaped and come with a variety of opening sizes, so be sure you select size appropriate needles, beading cord or thread.

You can purchase these beads strung in bunches or loose in containers. When you begin making jewelry with seed beads, you will soon want to experiment and produce your own styles. They are generally inexpensive but if you are completing multiple projects or make jewelry for resale, then you should consider purchasing seed beads wholesale.

The best place to find wholesale beads is at a local bead show.Bead Shows are very popular now days and can be found in most major cities.

Although, most shows are open to both retail and wholesale buyers, consider opening a resale tax id before attending any show. Buyers with a tax id tend to be treated better and receive lower prices. Obtaining a resale tax id is a simple process, done in an hour at your local tax office.

When selecting supplies try to go with colors that will blend or support the colors of your larger beads and pieces. Remember that these tiny beauties are there to serve as a conduit to showcase your larger more colorful beads. Many times you can find containers of seed beads in coordinating colors. This small effort on the part of a supplier will guide the novice beader. Also consider incorporating the use of Bugles into your projects. Similar to seed beads, bugles are small glass tubes available in different lengths and colors. The shorter the length of your bugle beads the lighter your piece will reflect. These beautiful pieces add a reflective touch and look amazing in embroidery work.
