Hi Folks,

I am looking for a Swarovski bead supplier. I have been dealing with
Swarovski directly for the past months, but the target amount I have
to spend to stay with them is too much!!! “to put it mildly”.

I would love to find a good supplier within my means, I want to buy
thousands at a time, but do not want to have to pay way above the
odds. I have dealt with a company in the states, “I’m in Ireland by
the way”…anyway I dealt with a company in America for a
long time, until they got a bit greedy, and started selling packs of
ten beads at a time !! the cost was a bit ridiculous.

“Please” “Please” is there someone in the Orchid community who may be
able to give me some direction?? I would love to deal with a company
in Europe, but I will do business once again with an American based
company if need be.

I work mainly with Swarovski crystals in my work, there fore it is
crucial that I find another supplier fast !! Thank you so much, all
replies will be answered.

Sincerely
Tina
In Dublin, Ireland

Hi Tina -

You don’t mention the name of the US company you have already dealt
with, so I hope I am not offering the same name!

Have you tried www.rainbowsoflight.com? Aside from the fact that
they seem to have constructed their Web site so that it’s a mystery
to everybody but them until you study it for quite a while, they seem
to have a good selection and good prices and do offer quantity
discounts. If your quantities are high enough they might work out a
deal with you. (Not a promise, of course, just a suggestion.) And
they will do special orders if they don’t normally carry what you’re
looking for.

Hi Tina,

Im here in the states. Our company uses EH Ashley in East
Providence, RI. They have a website, which I have never actually
visited www.ehashley.com. I usually speak to Bill Clark when I call.

I sure wish I knew of a company in Europe. That would be a much
better deal for you. Good Luck!!!

You can find Swarovski beads at Rio Grande and Rings’n Things. Sorry
I don’t know how the prices compare to buying directly.

Hi,

Don’t know if this is the company you already tried…I hope not as
I always find them absolutely superb Rings n Things have loads of
Swarovski stuff…I don’t use a lot of beads myself but they have
lots of stuff I do need, and they are superfast and efficient to me
here in Ibiza, Spain…much faster that buying from UK which is
always a pleasant surprise…try them…at

When we had our company for 27 years, we also used EH Ashley for a
long time, they are a great firm to do business with.

This looks like a great place. Some of those coatings are
surprising, such as that silver coating inside the hole.

Another “5-Star Swarovski Dealer” that I’ve ordered factory packs
from is http://www.merchantsoverseas.com

You’ll need to call or email them to get a password to see their
stock lists, set up a business account and get prices because they
change depending on currency fluctuations. Prices are great, though,
if you need lots of crystals. I think minimum purchase is $100.

For smaller orders, and decent prices, an internet place I found
that I don’t think anyone has mentioned yet is www.beadcorp.com I
haven’t ordered from them yet, but expect to try them out sometime.
