I was delighted with the items I received. I ordered reels of wire and I had researched on the internet before I decided to purchase. My decision was based on using a company I had heard of and very competitive prices. I was not disappointed.
I have never used beads before in knitting, I was unsure what I wanted, the pattern stated numbers of beads, not weight. I took the plunge and ordered, they arrived exactly what I wanted, I ordered too many but I will use them in other projects. I will use you again.
I bought several things from "The Bead Shop," things that I needed for "Kumihimo," braiding, the website has a very comprehensive selection of materials for Kumihimo including findings, weights and many other things. I bought a weight, a clasp and some glue that I was short of for my latest Kumihimo project. I will definitely be shopping with them again as I noticed that they had a huge selection of beads of all kinds for more of my beading projects, I found their website very exciting from a beaders point of view and I love to spend hours just looking and thinking of designs and projects that I can do. Their service is excellent too and delivery is fast.
I ordered some crystal heart beads and a beading booklet. The delivery took a little longer than most of the places I order my jewellery-making supplies from (this can't just be attributed to the pre-Christmas period, as I ordered from 2 or 3 other companies at the same time and their orders all arrived before this one).
When I received the order, there was an apology on the invoice, as one of the bead colours I'd ordered was out of stock. The note said that the remaining beads would be sent to me when they came back in stock. There was no hint as to how long this would take and I had paid for them.
My major gripe was that the beading booklet arrived in a poor state. The whole order was sent in a padded envelope, which really wasn't sufficient for the booklet. It is soft-backed, with 20-odd pages and the only word I can think of to describe its appearance, was 'corrugated'! I had to place it under a heavy weight for a few days, to straighten it out and it's still not 100%. I know it was only a booklet, but it cost almost £5.00 and I just think that some thought should have been put into the packaging.
Sorry this is quite a negative review, but the comments I make are justified.
I ordered wire and it was excellent quality really good price far better quality than any other wire I have ordered from other sites. I also ordered some czech faceted beads and they were amazing. Would also come back and buy from this site.
Prompt and efficient service
Found this site for jewellery findings and more. Placed my orders. Received confirmation via Email. Order followed well within the date stated. Well pleased on all counts.
I really like your shop and I really appreciate you writing the code number on the packages to match up with the description on the invoice, it makes it so much easier to reorder.
I love browsing your site for great ideas for my jewellery making.
I got charged extra because I live in northern Ireland however they use royal mail, which prices items no matter where u are in UK the same! Stated next day delivery, took six days, items missing, which I still waiting for.......

I have been ordering from The Bead Shop for some years now and have always found the variety and quality of products to be of a high standard. The web site is easy to use and my orders usually arrive quickly
I love the range and quality of beads and free delivery offers are perfect.
I love this product. I've just started making jewellery and making the loops is one of the trickier parts. This gadget does it all for you making the experience so much more enjoyable.
The product was dispatched quickly too. I received it in only a couple of days.
