Fire Mountain Gems is one of my favorite mail-order sources for all kinds of affordable jewelry-making supplies, from beads and findings to unusual materials to mix into your designs. Their catalog is fun to flip through, but don’t miss their Web site–it has plenty of extra resources for customers. One of my favorites is their EncycloBEADia section, with tons of technique videos and how-tos.
Fire Mountain also offers flat $5 ground shipping within the US, and they recently improved their assortable pricing with a new offer: if you order any 50 items (whether it’s 50 of one thing or a total A-Z), they automatically drop the prices to discount each piece you buy! And if you’re buying gold-filled or sterling silver wire, findings, or in bulk, keep in mind that they adjust the prices weekly to reflect the market. So you can, call (1-800-FIRE-MTN) to check the current pricing before actually buying–it could end up saving you a fair amount of money if you time it right.
