Where I buy my Cousin Products

I am asked constantly by fellow designer as well as clients where I get my beautiful beads.  I tell them online mainly.  This is so true.  The internet has a wealth of jewelry making suppliers out there.  But where is the best place?  It's my pleasure to tell you that I prefer Prima Bead. Why?  The site has a gorgeous selection of beads, findings, tools, and cordings that you won't necessarily find in stores. 

Prima Bead offers beautiful crystals from their own brand, Crystazzi, as well as Swarovski. Their findings range from Stainless Steel and Sterling Silver, to base metal and 14kt Gold Plated copper. 

Need seed beads?  Prima Bead has them.  Need large holed, Pandora style beads?  Prima Bead has those too.  Starting into Kumihimo? Check out Prima Bead's selection of Kumihimo supplies, looms, beads, and FREE projects to get you started.

I love shopping for supplies at Prima Bead because it's easy.  Having small children and very little time to go supply shopping, it is very convenient for me to shop online.  I love the fact that they offer FREE priority shipping on EVERY order. Prima Bead also packs all orders by hand with care.  They also offer volume discounts from 10% to 25%.  They have FREE project ideas to get your creativity flowing, a how-to section to show you jewelry making techniques step by step, even videos.  Now, Prima Bead offers a very nice selection of Beadalon products too.

You will find the quality of merchandise carried on Prima Bead to be top notch.  I love the Jewelry Basics line as well as the Elegance Metals line.  You can find a selection of the Jewelry Basics line at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store.  The Crystazzi brand crystals and pearls are very high quality.  I love using them because you get a lot of them for your money.  You can find Crystazzi and the Elegance Metals at Michael's.

So, if you want convenience of shopping online and FREE priority home delivery, then Prima Bead is for you!

If you need something quick, as often times I find myself needing an extra clasp or some headpins, I hit my local Walmart which carries a selection of Cousin products as well.
