Happy Friday to all of you!
The weekend is here, and just in time for lazing on a Sunday afternoon is a list of fifteen (15) fun and informative links for jewelers and crafters. Some link to easy projects, others to supply stores and there is a surprise or two in store for those that complete the list.
SUPPLIES: (Looking at these sites could get a girl into trouble!)
Jewelry Findings, Genstones, Metals and Tools, I drool just thinking about it.
I like this supplier and order many of my beads from them. Wide selection, nice variety, great customer service, and "Everything is Assortable" for discount prices on all orders! Catalog is also available. Express Ordering, Tips, Contests. Check them out!
Just wow. Lapidary Equipment, Jewelers tools and more. A bit pricy on things, but really nice equipment.
Again a bit pricy, but well worth the peruse for the selection of item alone. With an A to Z list and pdf / interactive flip through catalogs, there is a lot to look at and desire.
Beautiful Gemstones at affordable pries. Wonderful selection and variety to choose from.
